Altered Dictionary - G

This fortnight we are illustrating words for the letter G on The Craft Barn challenge blog.  

I had my Ms. Skellie Bride stamp out, and its graveyard section caught my attention.  So I went with "graveyard" for my word to illustrate.


It's the two hundred year old graveyard complete with black cat and bats.

Great use of a larger stamp, very spooky. The bats are obviously enjoying flying about this old page.
Do the adjoining words in the dictionary not complain about being covered up? Not sure what you could do about that if they did.

Brilliant once again - the cat and bats just finish it perfectly!

Great word choice!

Somehow I don't think you're going to have any competition for that word... Love your added bats & cat for an Halloween inspired illustration.

I love the cat and the bats in silhouette around your graveyard. This has a very Gothic atmosphere, great word choice.

I lost track of who I had visited due to computer and real life problems, but I came back because I wanted to make sure I hadn't missed anyone.

I love your graveyard scene and I give your black cat two paws up!

You've added your graveyard in so seemingly effortlessly there, as though it has crept in with the swirling mists that surround it. What a super creation. Lou x
