Greetings! This is a HUGE day for fans of gothic, dark, and alternative art. It’s Skull Appreciation Day! I have participated in this hop since it’s inception, and I have really been looking forward to it. You should be coming to me from Domino Art. If not, why not hop over to Terra’s Blog, where this creep-tastic hop begins. I made 2 projects for this exciting, yet unusual celebration.
The first is a Step Card. I had a lot of fun with this. The card features images from Rick St. Dennis. I used a LOT of Rick’s images for this Step Card. Here’s the list: Pirate Nayja, Going, Going, Gone, SkuLl with Roses (sans the roses), Treason, Monument, and I Have My Eye on You from the Smeared & Smudged Rubber Club. All images except for I Have My Eye on You are available in Rick’s Etsy Shop.
This was quite a time consuming piece…but well worth it! How beautiful is Nayja? She is a stunning pirate!
I have her holding the skull of one of her many victims. All images were colored with Spectrum Noir and Copic markers. You can click on any of my pictures to see it bigger.
I used an alphabet set from Martha Stewart for my title, and a stencil called Web from Stencil Girl.
I made a pair of earrings! I stamped my happy skeletons on Shrinky Dink paper, and used a few alcohol based markers to color them in. I punched a hole in the hands, and shrunk those babies down! It sure is fun to watch them dance while they are shrinking!
I think they are adorable. And they were so simple to make! Now it is time for you to hop along! Your next stop is my friend Donna, who is incredibly talented and sure to wow you! In case you get lost along the way, the entire hop list is posted below. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a creep-tatsic day!
