Skully Christmas

I've been dying to share this little guy on a finished card.

My hubby loves skulls so I thought drawing him a skull bauble would make the perfect card..  Once I'd finished him I thought others might like to have the opportunity to have him so I added him to my shop.

He's been coloured with ProMarkers and but out with a Spellbinders die.  The edges have been distressed with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz to make it look more grungy.

He's been mounted onto some black card stock cut out with a Spellbinders die.

The shaped card was covered with black crd stock before I added the design papers.  There were from Maja Design and have been distressed.

I've added some twisted looking vines which are wood chi elements from Scrapienic.  The HoHoHo sentiment is a stick on one from Hobby Craft, I thought went perfect with the image.

The only other things I've added is a glittery poinsettia and some black gems.

Happy Christmas Allen - I couldn't do all this without your support
