Tombstone Treat box

OK I know it's not Halloween, not even close!! But I love halloween and any excuse to make something for it is good for me. Although we are only about 4 months away!! LOL sorry.

I want to tell you a little about this treat box. First I have a stamp set from Bombshell Stamps called "Cherry Bomb" it has a cute stamp of a women sitting down and it also has this big devil face. He just screams halloween to me. He's so bad. Secondly I stamped him on grey cardstock with black ink then I dragged my Prisma colouring pencils out and coloured him in. I used red and white for his face, and green for his eyes. I like colouring this guy, he always looks cool!
The tombstone is a template I found It's 1 of 3 you'll find there and it's really fantastic!

Wow! Your treat box is so cool! I love the coloring and shading. To be honest, I was hesitant to buy that set as I wasn't sure how to use it. You made me want it now :-)

Isn't melstampz the coolest website ever? I always find the greatest tips, templates and inspiration.

Do you use Flickr? I'd love it if you could add your treat box to the Bombshell Stampers Flickr Group
