This week's Challenge!
Yep, good ol' Martha Stewart, you can always count on some fun crafting ideas. This week's challenge is to use her Coffin Template to create your own Coffin and do it up Bombshell Style!
So play along by popping along to Martha's site and picking up the templates!

Here is the coffin I made featuring Lucky Bride given to me as a RAK from the awesome Sarah K. You can imagine my surprise when I received a package from her AND the head Bombshell...Shannon! I'll show later what I made with what Shannon RAK'd me with! Both of these gals are amazing for thinking of me! Thank you both! Ok...so yeah here is my coffin! I almost didn't go through with it...a little surreal you know...but I did it! The second layer on top of the coffin is a Cuttlebugged piece. I ran it through the Cuttlebug machine with the folder that looks like wood and then just went over it with Basic Black ink to give it a "worn" look. Hinges were made with the tab punch and then attached with gold brads. If only I can get the creaking sound when an old coffin opens...then it would be perfect! LOL!

I decided to do the "senora muerta" on the outside because it goes with my background. According to family history...I have Spanish blood in me. So this Lucky Bride looks very Spanish so I used her in hope I look THAT good when I'm a vampire and resting in my coffin...lol...after Jasper leaves Alice and turns me into his eternal love. Ok...I do have a wishful heart! :P Shut up! HAHAHAHAHA! Ok now off you go! Make sure to drop some love on the other blogs in the hop! I'm sure they'd appreciate your love!

Oh Gabby! What a gorgeous piece you have created...and you know I have to give you some mad props for using hinges on your coffin. WOWERS! You did an AMAZING job! I absolutely LOVE this project. But JASPER? REALLY? (*giggle) Way to go sistah!

Finally! OMG, I TOTALLY AGREE, Jasper is way hotter than Edward! I mean, just look at him!!!

PaperCrafty said...

Love it Gabby!!

Nicole Maki said...

How did you do that amazing weathered wood on the front? I'm in love.

You completely nailed this challenge. I especially love how you colored the bride's hair. The shading makes her bangs perfect - I always blow it big time and make the bangs part of her head dress. LOL.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.

How uber-cool. Love how the outside graphic was quite deceiving since I was expecting something dark and spooky inside instead of that fabulous bombshell.
