I am participating in a small Halloween swap that Retro Cafe Art Gallery is hosting.  We had to make a set of altered tombstones and these are what I will be sending in.  I used alcohol inks and book pages for the backgrounds.  It was my first time using the inks and I really like how they turned out.

My favorite is the purple one

Very cute! My favorite is Magic, because I love fall colors but all 4 are very pretty.

Thanks all!  I used Distress Inks on the words and was happy with how bright they turned out.
