Death and Afterlife

Another book in the Dark Themes round robin. What happens when you die?
I have no particular religious beliefs.

I've always found the Mexican Day of the Dead traditions appealing.
I love this stamp design from After Midnight. My sister drew this laughing skeleton. :)
The headstone is a photograph from a nearby cemetary. Photocollaged them together and did dry embossing.

I did some dry embossing on the rose photos. I take a lot of flower photographs.
Sketched in the branches with a Sharpie Marker.

Another of my sister's stamp designs. I just used the skull portion of this one.
I used real dirt and sand in this. Adhered with Golden brand GAC. I hope it holds up.

More bones. I have bones going down into the earth on the first page and coming back up and turning into flowers on the second page.

A Dark Themed round robin would be right up my alley! I'm amazed at your work Zeborah and will spend this evening exploring more and your incredible stamps! Beware the opals though! I'm so glad you came to visit my blog. Delicious creations!!!
