I don't know what drew me to this image, but I did enjoy colouring it. Rick has lots of skull images at his Zibbet shop - some semi cute (there's one with a tiny dragon) and some downright scary!! I like the flowers surrounding this one. The coloured image has been sitting on my desk for a while, but last week I suddenly had an idea. I die cut the image with a decagon die, and then cut some design papers to frame the image. Before adhering the image to the mat layers, I sponged the edges to make it feel a bit antiqued. I covered the card with some lovely shimmery bronze/brown paper. The colours on this card are right out of my comfort zone! I found some fun stamps in my stash that I think work really well with the image. It's nice to use this HOTP paper stack as I've had it for years and years. On the inside I used another piece as a mat layer and die cut some white card with the decagon die - I sponged on some distress ink to age it a bit.
I've got a bit of a love affair with my Wink of Stella brushes and I've added sparkle to the flowers surrounding the skull - I do like the effect! Before I go, we're looking for a few people to join Rick's Facebook Design Team - full details can be found here. If you
That's all for now, but do come back later to see my card for the new Addicted to Stamps and More! challenge. Bye for now.
