Happy Halloween From!

Happy Halloween Fans!  Christi here from Scrapping For Tranquility .  I am very honored to once again be guesting this Halloween Day for

A small back story, My daughter is a huge Halloween fan.  She is 24 years old and even got married on Halloween.  To this day she dresses up every Halloween , with her 2 small children to take them trick or treating.  
Last year I made her a haunted house out of cardstock that she keeps prominently displayed in her home. Today I decided to make this to go with her haunted house:

I thought this Funeral Coach was more than fitting to go with her haunted house .  How about you?  I got the pattern from SVG Attic and really am happy the way it came  out.

I used Solid Core Cardstock in  3 different shades of grey's , and black to put it together .  I always recommend using a very strong and fast drying adhesive like Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.  This makes it much easier to put together , faster and lasts a lot longer. 

To give my projects depth and seem more real I always ink my projects and this one I used Tim Holtz's Distress Mixed Media Palette.  It really does enhance your projects.

Last but not least, To make the Pun of a name on the windows, I used FotoBella White Premium Vinyl 12-x-10 Roll and cut it on my Cameo 3.  This really set it all off.  Adding the coffin as an extra prop and I was done.  I hope she will enjoy it.

Let me know what you think!  
Leave me a comment, I love to hear what you have to say!  I will always answer back!

Until next time,
