Bone Appetite

Good Morning.  Today is Monday and that means back to school after the weekend.  I will be so glad when this school year is over.  I'm done.  It's been a very awkward year.  Only a few more weeks..I can make it..

I thought I would try my hand at another macabre card.  I'm not very good at this type of card, but Haunted Design House has some great challenges.  My work doesn't even come close to their design team or even the people who enter the challenges, but they are fun.

The theme for this challenge is Skeletal Remains.  We had to use skeletons and bones.  I had this stamp set from Recollections in my stash that I purchased after Halloween last year for $1.99.  I stamped the skeleton twice with Versa Fine Onyx ink and cut one of them out.  I  used pop dots to add the cut out one to the main image.  I stamped the sentiment and brain on the card stock and then colored the brain with a light ink and did some line work with a red BIC marker.  I drew a blood pool to try and make it a little more gruesome.  The skeleton has just pulled out this brain so he has blood dripping from his hand.  I inked the edges of the image with DI Vintage Photo and matted it on a panel of Red card stock from Recollections.  The back ground paper I made by stamping the large skull randomly on white card stock.  I inked around the edges of this too.  I added some flowers from my stash to offset the creepy image.  I hope this works for the challenge.  It's way out of my comfort zone.

Thanks for stopping in to see my creepy creation.  Have a great day and God bless y'all.
