Comes in small bottles - well I've decided to do a small version with this Rick St Dennis image (Smilin Joe Skull with Roses) and make a tag :D

I've had this image coloured up for ages (using ProMarkers).  You might be able to tell because my colouring style has improved somewhat.  I'd cut the image out with a die originally but decided I'd not left enough white space.  So there it sat on my table waiting for some inspiration.

My hubby loves skulls and his birthday was coming up.  I'd bought some him some whiskey and decided it needed a tag -  fussy cutting the image I held it up to a tag and found it was the perfect size - yay!

Papers used are black card stock (distressed), Docrafts and Santoro, more card stock cut with a Tim Hotlz die.  there's also a piece of black lace, a wooden golden arrow, some black gems, letter beads to make up the poison sentiment and some mixed ribbon and thread in black, grey, pink and burgundy.

Here's the finished product - it came out fab.  GOT to do some more of these
