I'm slipping in under the wire (seriously, less than 30 minutes left!) at my favorite spooky blog - Haunted Design House for this week's challenge - Perplexing Pigment Play. Your piece has to use black, teal, purple and lime green. It's being sponsored by Bugaboo Digi Stamps and so I purchased an adorable little image to use - Deacon Skull Flower.
Oddly, teal is not a naturally occurring color in my craft room and I have no idea why. After scouring for almost an hour, I finally found a fabulous little piece of embossed paper in the right color. I added a green velvet ribbon that I ran through a skull embossing folder and some purple paper.
I used colored pencils to give Deacon a nice lime green zombie color and gave his eyes a little blood ring. I think zombies give the best skull flowers. Some teal hair and tadah!
A handmade flower that I dyed black and embellished with a green skull from Creepy Glowbugg completed the look.
I'm also going to submit this over at:
Smudger Challenge Blog - Skulls
Forever Night Challenges - Anything Goes
Poisoned Peas - Goth or Emo (I'm pretty sure zombie boys will skull flowers count!)
Fat Pages and Cards with Attitude - Anything Goes
Stamping with the Dragon - Anything Goes
Thanks for looking!
