Alas Poor Yorick!

This is my entry for the Alas Poor Yorick challenge (skulls) over at Haunted Design House.  The winner gets to go shopping at Creepy Glowbugg's etsy shoppe which makes me all twitterpatted because I have a huge crafting crush on her stuff.

I decided I wanted to try something that associated with beauty and delicateness but with a creepy edge; so here's my Skull Moth.

I stamped and cut out 19 skulls and assembled them on a chipboard butterfly shape that I had prepared by coloring with walnut ink and gothic writing.  Each skulls is on a pop dot and curled a little bit for a little dimension.  I added the spine, did a little glossy accents and popped on the pearls.  I wanted the antennae to be moth-y looking, but I'm not sure if it worked.    Sadly, all my stamps are unmounted and I have no idea where they came from. 

Thanks for looking!!
