Eerie does it

Hello bloggers! The minions at Haunted Design House have challenged us to make something creepy, Gothic, or Halloweeny this time, so I've taken the opportunity to share something I've been playing with for a while.
I'm not sue what to call it - but I think it fits the bill for gothic!  It's made from chipboard which has been given the Andy Skinner weathered wood treatment (and you will need to sign up for Andy's Timeworn Techniques course to find out how it's done) which I've cut into the arch shapes - love that Alterations die, it's one of my favourites.  Another one of my go-to dies is the Spellbinders birdcage, and I've used it here on the three sides of the arches-
The rest of it's just a cotton reel with some texture paint and a small skull from a Hallowe'en decoration with some acrylic paint (another Andy technique).  Last of all I hot-glued the black lucite rose bead.  I still don't know what the final article is, but I hope you like it - and that you come back again some time!

Thanks for coming,

Crafty hugs,

Oh this is fabulous Keren! Perfect for our challenge. Love that weathered wood treatment and the birdcage in the arches is just brilliant. Thanks for playing in the dungeon with us at HDH. xxD

This is a fabulously weathered altar of sorts. So very well done!
Glad you were inspired by our eerie photos.
Thanks for playing along with us at HDH!
