True Love Never Dies

Good morning and happy Tuesday. It's my turn to share my Visible Image project with you today. Although we've not had Halloween yet, I've moved forward to Day of the Dead.




I started by applying lots of DecoArt Multi Surface Satin paints to a chipboard heart, then stencilling over the top. It's looking a bit rough at this stage but it doesn't matter.
I put another stencil over the top then went over again with watered down gesso.


Next I stencilled Day of the Dead with black gesso, and stamped the large stamp from Mr Bone Jangles twice for placement.
I then stamped him onto card and cut him out. Mr and Mrs BJ have been stencilled and even doodled on (yes I doodled!) He's also been stamped onto shrink plastic (baby BJ lol).


My sentiment has been made with my go to label maker. I would be really lost without this!

It would be fab if you shared your Visible Image makes with us in our Show and Tell file on facebook. 
There's also loads of inspiration here in our FB group, then there's the blog , and the shop  where you can see all the lovely stamps.

I'm also entering this into the Lost Coast Designs's 31 days of Halloween scary or weird challenge, and Dream in Darkness's creepy or weird (anything but cute) challenge. Though I do think the BJ family are quite cute!

Thanks very much for looking, and have a fun week x
