Skull Appreciation Day Blog Hop!

Hello friends - welcome to the:


You should have arrived here from Evil Edna's blog.  I've got 2 projects to share with you for today's hop.  My fellow teamies and I at the Movie Magic Monthly Challenge blog decided to play along by creating projects based on a movie.  My card is based on Pirates of the Caribbean, one of my all-time favorite movies:

I found this image at a "free coloring pages" site online, printed it on kraft cardstock and colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits, then covered his eye patch with Black Diamond Stickles.  I used a piece of Tim Holtz Kraft map paper crumpled up and dragged through a gray ink pad for the background.  Embellies include black pearls (get it?  The Black Pearl?  ;)  I'm so clever, right? hee hee), a little Glow Skull, and a skull key charm. Head on over to see what the other DT members created!

I could not resist using this freebie from Rick St. Dennis for my personal project for this fun hop:

I printed the image onto my DP from Authentique, and colored it with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  I created a round card base with my Coluzzle, and then used smaller circles for the image and to layer behind it.  I added some gemstone stickers, some text and alpha stickers, white fun flock on the feathers, and this little flower I had in my stash that happened to match perfectly.  I love how this came out!

And I figured I might as well enter him into the Rick St. Dennis Airless Chambers Challenge:  Anything But a Square/No Sharp Corners

OK now off you go to Steph's page - have fun hopping!  Peace.
