Skulls & Roses

Hi Everyone,

Today I have my  project for the 613 Avenue Create  Anything Goes challenge.  Our sponsor this week is Rick St. Dennis and I've chosen to work with the Skull Roses image.  I usually work with the cutesy images but I love skulls...my dark/artistic side :)
The sentiment was a free wordart digi from Ginger's House.  All of her digi's are free and she has a great sense of humor!!  You should check out her blog.

Image colored with Prismacolor pencils/Gamsol and chalks.  I used the Spellbinders Grand Labels Eleven die and distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz distressing tool then inked the edges in gray.  I mounted it on some red/orange mulberry paper which I torn the edges.  For a tip on how to do this see my post HERE

Hugs,
Kathi
