I made a coffin, not a boat, out of ordinary card using a Martha Stewart template. I covered it in red, blue and black paint with a little bit of crackle. The reason I say it is not a boat is that Paula, my Design Team Leader for Eclectics, said it was a nice boat when she first saw it LOL......
I die cut the iron fence using TH die, painted it black and rubbed a little rub n buff into it. I attached this to the base of the coffin as decor and the lid to look like railings just like you sometimes see on coffins.
The lid of the coffin was like a box lid and it did not suit me so I cut off the overhang so the lid would slide. I used chipboard to strengthen the lid.
I covered the cut off overhang from the lid with teeny weeny Fleur de Lis and attached it to the top edge of the coffin. These were the left overs from a mask I bought from Crafty-Emblies. They came in real handy as you can see.
I used quite a few winged embellies made by our esteemed leader and her hubby, Judie and Pete, gave them all the same paint treatment and placed them on top and round the sides of the coffin. I sprayed my creation with Cosmic Shimmer Mist to give it all a bit of an ummmmpppphhhhhh! Hope it worked for you lol.
