COCO'S TOWER OF DOOM?!......

...Seemed like a good title for this post because tonight I want to show you an amazing Halloween tower make by clever Coco, plus some of her other especially spooky makes, all made to support our current October Challenge.  Quote from the lady herself about her fabulous tower - 'every piece was entirely heat-embossed. I used greyboard, folded it to get a dimensional box and tower, and put sticky canvas all around each piece with strong glue at the edges. I played with a lot of embossing powders, masks, crackling, inks...'  
With such a fantastically fabulous result, I'm sure you will agree?!....






...Wow loving the crackle on that crow!  Coco has featured CI-249, and CI-361 on her make as well as masses of imagination! You can read how she went about making her very original 'Tower of Doom' on her blog HERE.

Coco also created a cracking complementary board plus a brilliant box (to contain mini bottles, bones and vials - of course)...





CI-360 was additionally used for the box.


You are particularly lucky tonight as now I have another superb make by Coco to show you, featuring the same stamps, and which I also absolutely adore too....




The script to the sides is from CI-406.  What a simply stunning display of creative work!  Many, many thanks Coco.  Please leave a comment of support if you can.

Back soon,

Jean x

Jean, I am so lucky as yesterday, in the mail I received the wall hanging. It was such a lovely surprise from Coco.
