Skull

Hello All,

For today I am going to playing along with Fusion and, for the first time, Wednesdays Creative Inspirations. Their challenge was very intriguing these last couple of weeks. And look at me waiting till the last minute to get my entry submitted. So, here is my card for today, enjoy!
You can see I took the photo inspiration very seriously for this design.
My deviation comes from the blood-soaked banner and sentiment. The inspiration a monochromatic scheme. I thought my card needed a bit of balance so I added the blood red and sparkly green.
The background was created using the leftover image from a design using foil. I kept the leftover to use for this background. It seems to work well. The wreath was created using a black die-cut donut and some ribbon. Like the inspiration, I added a yellow-green bow at the bottom with some yellow accents sprinkled around the card. 
The skull and gears are all part of one die-cut piece of paper. Die-cut the shape and stamped the gears and skull. But by far my favorite part is the blood-soaked banner. This was done using photo paper, water, and a re-inker. All I did was run the ink down the paper until it started moving downwards. I did this using multiple layers until I was satisfied.

Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon. Take care and happy stamping.

All the best,

Shawna
