Arches Lace - SCD

Oh Dear SCD'ers!!!
If you are expecting some sweet.....vintage....loveliness lace concoction this week from me for the first week in the new month of arches I'm afraid you are going to be disappointed! LOL
My lovely teamie Dawn picked "lace" for her first chosen theme as an SCD DT member and I could not get the film title "Arsenic and Old Lace" out of my head I just had to do this so I could move on with my life!!! HOL
Hold on to your hats....
....especially if you are not a Hallowe'en fan!
I did try not to make it too spooky......

Googled image of a vintage arsenic label and printed off
.....stamped the T!m skeleton and masked to stamp the tombstone (my own)
......stamp...not tombstone you understand!! HOL
(It's actually a coffin lid but works just as well for the tombstone providing you mask the end!!)
....some DI's faded jeans/shabby shutters/dusty concord for the background
...greenery, grass and trees in a mixture of pine needles/shabby shutters/peeled paint and brushed corduroy
.....stapled the lace that I had previously distress inked (you might have caught a glimpse of it hanging in my cupboard to dry on WOYWW this week!) and coloured the staples black with a sharpie pen

Thanks for looking and happy stamping
Can't wait to see what you all make this week for SCD.....I'd get yourselves over to the rest of the team for a look 'cos you will get a loveliness fix there for sure :)
xoxo Sioux
