Sheena Douglass "Day Of The Dead"

Hey guys! I'm BACK, with a bit more catch up!! ......DAY OF THE DEAD!! what an absolutely FANTASTIC collection!! Totally missing I thought from the craft world and I just love it all!! Collection of Stamps and coordinating dies from our Sheena for this launch, if you want to check them out you can over on the Crafters Companion website just ....HERE!!
So we have 8 fabulous stamps and 6 die collections...where to start!! The Inkoids had so much fun with this launch, I checked out on line the "Day of the Dead" festival to get a feel and some inspiration!! favourite just HAS GOT to be the Skull, its fantastic , great size too, would work brilliantly in mixed media, infact our DT Coordinator Donna made a fantastic canvas, you need to go check it out!! 
So here you go....... it's a loooooooong post!
here is THE SKULL!! isnt it fabulous!! I had so many ideas with this I just didnt know how to clolour in I made 9 on a baord haha, Now the skull comes plain its not decorated as you see here, I've used some of the stamps that come in the collection and also used a fine line black pen to draw some of my own! so...endless combinations here!! this is also the Skull I teamed up with the skull on Sheenas new Torn collection I posted a couple of days ago!

 little close up shot!! Do you like my eyes on the centre one!! love it, so simple just used the waste from the die cut and drew them myself very easy
 and here's the beautiful lady! Adore this stamp, she doesnt
 come with her face painted, I added that myself!!here is
 the stamp so you can see how she comes..
...beautiful yes?! but I added the iconic makeup that is so well known with this festival, then her hat, is a stamp and die also in this collection that goes with another set!! worked perfectly I thought
Next up the skull again, this time as a floating skull, I made a diarama card with a piece of acetate in the centre that i stuck my skull to, gives the appearance it is floating!! These flowers are in the collection too!!

..... More skulls... and how amazing is that music stamp!!! also in the collection!
The couple... went bold and colourful on this one....unusual for me right??? hahahahha
next.....i LOVED MAKING THIS!! I didnt see it on tv which was a shame though lol but it was so much fun to make, and I am sooooo making a few to decorate the house when I have an halloween party!!

even the cat and dog are in on the act!!
...last but by no means least the card I was asked so much about was my tunnel floating skull card with the eyes that FOLLOW you!! I will be doing a step out for this card with much better lighted photos that this one shows!! because of the tunnel the eyes that are only on the base layer give the illusion of following you its so cool!!, will get the step out for this one done asap ...and I also need to make one for my shelf lol
right folks thats it!! Check out the rest of the Inkoids for some more inspiration and our Pinterest board too
thanks for stopping by! would love to know what you think so please do leave a comment!!


  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE all of these wonderful samples. Now I must make a confession, I have bought the stamps, cut them out but as yet have not inked them. When I do I'll be popping back here for my inspiration.
