I love this fun set called Skulls 1 from Creative Play Stamps. I have three sons, plus I teach high school, so skull fashion is a part of my everyday life! I can see using this on gift items and scrapbook pages as well! Further more, one of the stamps in this set is a skull and crossbones, and our school mascot is the Pirates, so it's an obvious choice for me!
I enjoyed taking what some might consider a gruesome subject and putting it onto an extremely girlie card. There's even glitter here, but I guess that goes without saying! I also used CPS's Thinking of You sentiment set. I thought the, "get well soon" and, "miss you" stamps might be a tad morbid, so I settled on, "HI!" I used Palette Hybrid Noir to stamp the skull, it covered beautifully. I thought about embossing him, but was worried it might mess up the clever skull eyes, even with detail EP. I might try that later. I used my circle nestabilities, and white signo gel pen and black sharpie on the layers. The DP is NRN Design. The paisleys match Almost Amethyst perfectly, and AA is in my top three favorite SU! colors!! The hear is a tag from WalMart, I just used the back. The ribbon is SU!, the glitter is AI Azure, and there is Crystal Stickles in the corner. I also bugged the black panel and used the ticket corner punch as a final touch. Thanks so much for stopping by!!
