Day 7!!!

 Hello and welcome all you awesome hoppers!!!!! First off congratulations to KC aka Kapree!!!! You have won the Poe jewelry set. Email me at thefactorycorp at yahoo dot com your address please and I'll get it out to you. Also, Silvia H, the Alchemy Factory scavenger hunt winner from day one, if you could email me too, I'll give you your $20 code.  Today I have a wooden coffin that will be a candy holder. I'm hoping to get like 8 different containers done for friends kiddos. I painted this black, sanded the edges and went over it with Tim Holtz brown ink. I stamped Lonely Boy from Smeared Ink (sadly he is no longer with the company, he has decided to retire, fame was to much for him). I stamped him with Vera Mark and embossed him with Tim Holtz embossing powder (which I really don't like, it doesn't seem to stick or emboss well). Then I used my Versa Pen to color his shirt green, with embossing powder.
For the inside, I used a studio G stamp, which I embossed in black. I did a broader of MS black glitter and did the skullies eyes in orange glitter. Thank you for all the wonderful comments and Thanks so much for hanging in there! The dreaming Lyneen is next! Enjoy!
