Baaaahaha! It’s that time of year again when Tombstones are beginning to pop up everywhere. You will begin to see more and more of them over at the Retro Café Art Gallery Inspiration Community page on Facebook. There is also a contest going on. Since I am member of the Design Team, I am not participating in the contest but I do love the Tombstones and look forward to making them each year.

Everyone is welcome to make and share, we would love to see your Tombstones!

These are the new tombstones I created for this

I love the little Sugar Skulls and word cut outs are just perfect additions for the tombstones. They are easy to paint and apply.

 I added the black and orange metallic glitter for some ghoulish sparkle!


 This is one of my favorites I made, I guess I just love his "devilish" grin!

I love the Raven holding his skull treasure and the mini bat on his hat! 

I found two of these little iron gates at The Vintage Market Days this Summer and they fit perfectly on the stands by carving out two small holes and adding glue.

Iron gate-my personal stash
 Last year I participated in a Tombstone Swap and these are the ones I created for 2015.

Below are the ones that I got back from my fabulously talented art sisters! Aren’t they just Boooo-tiful? Make no “bones” about it, they are very addictive!
