Skullies Everywhere! It's a BIG Blog Hop!!

Hiya folks!

Ooopsies, it's been AGES since I blogged anything here, can you believe that it was 18th May the last time I posted?? Sheesh, where does the time go???

Anyroadup, today sees us 'darker folk' celebrating SKULLIES as it is

And our lovely hosts at Smeared Ink have once again outdone themselves by organising this rather HUGE Blog Hop!! There are 45 of us taking part this year (phew!) and rather than putting the list in this post, I have popped all the names in the sidebar for you.
You should have come to me from Milo.
Typical me to join at the last moment though. That means I am last on the list - wonder how  many will give up before they get to me?! lol

Righty then, so to my make which is the front of a card, or wallhanging. Whatever you will. It is 6" x 6" on black cardstock smeared with silver and copper rub on stuff.

The paper and images are all my own designs.
The paper is one I  made from my 'Pile 'o' Bones' image copied and rotated, then coloured and printed out. I used the same thing for the frame round the main image.

This is the first of my new 'Horrorscope' series of images based on the signs of the Zodiac.
Well, I am doing a 'normal' version so I just HAD to do a 'not-so-nice' version too didn't I??

This is 'Horrorscope - Leo' and he comes with the text image too!

He got printed out several times and then was fussycut to achieve all the decoupage layers.
These were raised on foam pads for depth.

The text image was printed out and layered onto a smaller sized version of the backing paper, then layered onto some more black card. This was then raised up on foam pads too.

Last but not least, I added a couple of wee charms.
Couldn't use ribbon to attach them to as it looked awful, so I just punched a couple of holes to attach the ring to the card.

Okay, so you've seen my make, you can now breathe! That's the end of the hop.
I hope you enjoyed all the different makes!

Why don't you hop along and do a make with skullies too!!??!!

Hugs to all, and thanks for making it this far!
Teri xx

Wow, your card is so awesome! I love it!

~Lady B~ said...

Another gorgeous piece! Your work is always so fabulous! May I ask, what printer do you use? I'm fond of fussy cutting previously colored and scanned images, but noticed the color does not turn out exactly as it should. Do you have any recommendations? BTW, I love your concept for the zodiac signs. Brilliant!
