Bombshell Stamps Halloween Hump Day Hop

Happy Hump Day, hoppers :-) This weeks challenge was to use Martha Stewart's coffin treat box template and Bombshell it. I had the simple idea idea of making a black coffin with a pink, brocade velvet lining. Easy enough. Then I made the coffin inside out...OOPS... and ended up with a very cute pink fuzzy coffin. Um... now what? For starters, it didn't scream Halloween or Day of the Dead, in fact, it was glam - like a Kiss coffin.


Okay, maybe not that glam.

Then I got thinking about the current Embellish Magazine Challenge and how much I loved how one of the Bombshell girls (whoever you are, you ROCK!) colored an image in black and white. A plan was hatched!





This treat box features Mi Amor one of the new stamp sets from the Sugar Skull Release.

Amazing how much different the embossing makes the coffin look. Must admit she's really creepy and fits the coffin so well! Just love the pink!

A pink Coffin! I love it! A very cool treat box for anytime. Love the gems, Senora!!!

Kathi said...

When you said the outside was pink and fuzzy, I hadn't pictured this. In fact, what I pictured was rather horrific, and not in a good way.

On the other hand, this is totally fabulous! I love the pink coffin and the rhinestone edging.

SeƱora Muerta looks amazing in grayscale.

Fabulous take on the coffin challenge!

If I were to be a vampiress and live in a coffin this iswhat I would want it to look like. Im not much of a pink type gal but this is just so fun. I love the texture of it too. Excellent.
