Altered Chess Piece

This is a piece for the 15 days of Half o ween, see the Domino Art blog( this will be there on may 23 rd )   for more info.

I have altered a giant chess piece (Tower), I  had this lying around for ages to "do something with it sometime", and it's perfect for the 15 days of half o ween, because we have to use game pieces.

I added all kinds of stuff, if you look close you will find all kinds of gamepieces
on it. There are dominos (1 altered with a Rick St. Dennis digi) and scrable tiles, tarot cards   (i collect those, these are Rider Waite Tarot cards) and there is also  a bingo number.

I blinged the chess piece up  a bit by using rhinestones and glitter , the Count draco digi is a Rick St. Dennis image and the Raven is also a RSD image. The vampires are not available anymore but there are a lot of other creepy images in the Crypt part of the Etsy.

The roses are made using Tim Holz and Marianne Design dies, the tombstones is a Tim Holtz die, and  the  pumpkins and the skulie are plastic.

If you have any questions regarding this post, please email me here

O and some exiting news for you, there is an awesome skull rubber stamp set by Rick St. Dennis for sale here
