Skull Appreciation Blog Hop.


Hi Everyone. Well Today is Skull Appreciation Day over at Smeared and Smudged.
I was asked by Rick StDennis to make a Skull card for them and so here you have it. The image is one of Ricks.  You can get it in his STORE HERE!

Photobucket
I have used Distress Inks to colour up my Skull with Roses as felt that I wanted an aged look.

I also made my backing papers myself using a variety of distress inks and stamps I have in my stash. Its finished off with Perfect Pears. I was so busy playing I didn't notice the tub was upside down when I opened it and Ooops!!!! I got them everywhere!!!
