Ancient Skull

Mr Bone Jangles

It is my turn over at Visible Image today and I have gone over to the dark side with Mr Bone Jangles...well, the 'ancient' side anyway...
It turns out to be perfect for my son's girlfriend's birthday!
She is into skulls and the colour purple.

For this card I have used a background technique that uses wax paper and an iron!
The last card that I made used a sewing machine...it's good to know that my household items are good for crafting too lol!!!
What I like about this technique is that you will end up with a different look each time you do it.

The detail of the crumpled wax paper is given more definition with my Inktense pencils.

Add a little stenciling and some black edging and I have come up with a real ancient feel to the background.

The tooth is coloured with a gold gel pen...it was an after-thought, but I like it anyway.

Stamp used:





Enjoy!
