Skulls 1 in Basic Gray

When I got this set, I had no idea I would have this much fun with it! I have sort of an offbeat sense of humor, and dressing these skulls up in girlie stuff just tickles me to death! For this card, I knew I wanted to paper piece their caps, and one of the lines I'm fixated on right now is Two Scoops, so out it came! I colored their eyes and mouths with SU!'s Blush Blossom pen, which is the one I use most often. I have all of SU!'s markers, and two of many of them, but this is the only one I keep in my desk drawer so it's always close at hand. I stamped the skulls and sentiment in Palette Hybrid Noir, my current favorite black pad. I've heard raves about some others, but haven't tried them yet. I did my Clear Glaze pen dot bit around the central image, and poured on the Art Institute Glitter in Lion's Mane, which you can get at Creative Play Stamps. The Basic Black panel is layered on a melon colored piece of DP from MME Gypsy line, and both are punched with the ever present ticket corner punch by SU! The various Primas are held together with a Making Memories Gem brad, and the gems in all the corners are little stick-ons from Wal-Mart. They are made for cells and ipods, and they're sort of in the beading/ jewelry area. They aren't Swarovski, but how much do you really want to spend? I bugged the Barely Banana piece, and that's a bit of SU!'s ribbon from the Flirt line. Thanks for stopping by!
