SKULLS

For my weekly dose of 100 Proof Press I am using the SKULL image to create a card for my Nephew's birthday in November.
I began with a machine stitched web in one corner and hand sewed some skull beads against the web. The birds and splatter were stamped in black archival and I then added to black and white Bazzill card.
I added SKULL using Tim's Alpha Parts and added a coffin charm to the bottom corner, it actually opens too and reveals a full skeleton inside.
I stamped the SKULL image three times onto white card, coloured with black soot Distress Ink and bent slightly to give some dimension and added to my card. This stamp is going to be great for some of my Halloween makes this year!
I also added a skull to the inside of my card.

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your weekend. Tracy x x
