A Bit of Skull-duggery

Hiya folks!

Bbbrrrrrr, cold wind today, but the sun is out and that's making for a not-too-bad day here in northern Scotland. Glad we missed out on the snow that flew across the country this weekend!!

So, here I am (a bit late as I've been gardening) with my DT make for the new theme at HDH, Macabre Monday. 
This time it's all about the SKULLS - we want to see a veritable Skull-Fest!!

I started making a wee Tarot card set, just for fun.
Used my Pile o' Bones paper as a backing for the playing cards. Made me a template for them and cut out about eight so far. Didn't realise that there are 72 cards in a full pack. . .hmmmmm


I used 'Angel of Death' for my Death Tarot.
And I have use my newest dark image 'Cranium Caresses' for the High Priestess one. Yeah, I know they aren't factually correct or anything, but hey, I'm not doing it to start reading the cards. Just a bit of fun really.


 I have also created a wee box to put the cards in. Took an old card packet and used that as a template, then covered it with embossed black card and smeared the surfaces with metallix waxy stuff. One wee die cut shape and another (unreleased) image for the front, and voila!!


So there you have it then peeps!

Wonder if I can find any challenges for this to be entered into...somehow I doubt there will be very many. . .
