Day of the Dead Contest at Lost Coast Designs

Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda is having a awesome
Dia de los Muertes - Day of the Dead Contest!

Contest is now open and you can enter all your DOTD themed projects in the Lost Coast Portal for the chance to win a $15 spending spree to LCD/CV! 
 The contest closes Nov 15 at midnight and the winner announced soon after!

When thinking about DOTD, a thought came in to my mine.
Candles, we do burn the candles remembering the love ones
and take the candles to the cemetery at holidays
- so I made a altered candle stick.

Found a grey wooden candle stick on a sale basket at supermarket
and start working on it...

The round pieces are flattened bottle caps and the sugarskulls
are stamps from Lost Coast Design, I embossed the mini skulls
on black paper using cold embossing powder.

I painted, sprayed and used Inka Gold on this,
Flowers, butterflies and chain are all 
from my stash, I also used some pits and pieces
from an old belt I found from the flee market.

I would like to enter to some challenges:
Eclectic Ellapu /purple team - Halloween / horror / dark
Altered Eclectics - AG as long as altered art / mixed media
That Craft Place - Mixed Media
Fussy and Fancy - flowers
Brown Sugar - flowers
