Tando Monthly - Spook that Same But Different thing.

This month's theme of the ~{Tando Monthly Challenge Blog}~ is Spook It, and this week on the ~{Tando Blog}~, the team are doing a same but different theme, so I have used the ~{Pair of Coffins}~ to combine both. It's always fun during these weeks to see how differently the products get decorated.


The coffins come flat packed, but are pre-scored so all you have to do is fold and stick. I stuck the coffin onto the base board from the ~{Layered Coffin with Web Detail}~ and scraped some texture paste all around it to make uneven grass.

When that was dry I painted the coffin and lid, which is also from the Layered Coffin Pack, with Fresco paints and then the Paperartsy Crackle Glaze and another layer of paint. This Crackle Glaze is brilliant stuff; so much easier than DIY with the glue!! All that was needed after that was a bit of ink on the edges.

I've painted 3 skulls from the ~{Mini Skulls}~ pack and inked the edges.

Once the coffin was dry, I painted the grass on and added more of that lovely fabric I got from my sister, then added some flowers to finish it off.

I've added some sweets to the coffin and glued the lid in place.

You've still got a bit of time to enter the challenge this month and you will be in the draw to win some Tando goodies to play with!
