Skeletal Remains

A new challenge has started over at Haunted Design House. Two weeks to show us what you can make of/interpret the challenge theme of


Any thing to do with that structure within all but the simplest of animals. Skulls, skeletons or bones in general will suffice.
Haunted Design House are being sponsored this challenge by

The Octopode Factory
There's a $15 gift certificate up for grabs for the winner.
The Minions got to play with some of the images that are available in the shop
I got to play with Skull with Roses and Skull Head Sticks.
The background was made with lots of the Skull Head Sticks images. Coloured with promarkers then heat embossed with clear powder. Next came a black mica spray with a touch of lilac. The banner is part of the Skull With Roses digi. The motto is handwritten. The skull image was used 5 times to make the 3-D skull. Cut out and glued together before dipping in UTEE.
Final touch, the last of my chicken bones with some tiny black and red rosebuds.

Get those skeletons out of the closet and get creating peeps.
Looking forward to seeing those projects.

Also please, pretty please, we will all need your support in the next DT Throwdown. Get signed up at the Smeared and Smudged Forum. You never know, you might even like it there! If you are a member of a design team and want to join in - even better.
