I make a set of these Tombstones every year for a swap that is hosted by Retro Cafe Art Gallery. The only rule is you have to use the new set of four Tombstones. I purchased a little set of chipboard monsters and traced them on to watercolor paper to paint. The tombstones themselves are just painted then splattered. My favorite is the black tombstone with the orange monster.



Here is a collage of my past tombstones which I have shared here but am too lazy to dig up links!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Awesome work; I like the orange one-eyed demon and the green ghost gravestones the best out of the quartet, but they're all creepy cool!

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Your tombstones are so fun! You have made an impressive and completely varied collection. I'd be thrilled to receive any of them! Do the tombstones come with the stands?
