G is for ...

The ABC Challenge is up to G today. There were a ton of things I could have done for G, but I decided to go with something morbid and great for Halloween. So, G is for ... Gravestones.

The grey of New York Colors Sidewalkers made for a great base color. Then I darkened it with some black and lightened it with some white to create the speckled look. I purposely left off any top coat in an attempt to keep the very rough, textured look of old gravestones. I added a skull to my ring finger and a sharp lettered RIP to my middle finger. The last step was to use some of my just purchased Recollections Lime flocking powder to create a scummy moss growing on the 'gravestones'.

  2. Great idea that you didn't add the top coat, the texture for this theme is perfect!
