Witch Shrine

When I showed my husband this finished piece, he said, "Who knew an innocent little fruit crate could turn into something so creepy?" :) Exactly!!! Painted the wooden clementine crate, ripped, stamped and inked some skull paper and reassembled into a background. More ripping and inking for the mat. I altered the antique photo myself. My friend Brynna (my friend Terri's daughter) gave me the skeleton. The shroud over the top is tea dyed cheese cloth. I made this last year some time.


  1. Oooh, wooow .... this is soo cool, love the eerie, creepy feel to your card - you've done it well ... a great take on the transparency challenge, love that witchy image!!!
    Thanks for joining us at Our Creative Corner!!!

  2. Hi Kimberly,

    This is a very cool project indeed. I really love the vintage gothic feel to it - great job! But sorry, it doesn't qualify for the transparencies challenge over at Our Creative Corner because it was originally published prior to the opening date of our challenge which was October 15, 2011. Additionally, there is no link or mention of our challenge in your post.

    We hope you will still want to play along with our challenge and would welcome an entry made on or after the opening date of our challenge. Hope you understand.

    Thanks so much for being a visitor to our challenge blog!


  3. Thank you, Tui! I added the hats to one of my vintage photos in photoshop. :)

    If anyone would like to purchase an image like this, I have 8 altered photos available in digital form on my Etsy store. You can print them on card stock, photo paper, transparencies, printable fabric- wherever your imagination takes you! :) Here's the link:

  4. oh, I thought I'd read that it didn't have to be a new project. Didn't realize there were other perimeters.
