Today is Day 12 of the 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN

Here is my offering.  Sorry for the poor camera phone pictures.
(click images to enlarge)



I made another ATC today. 
 I used "Skull Front" from Smeared Ink's "Anatomy 101" digi set.  
The skull was colored with Copic markers and scanned into my PC. 
 The image was sized to fit an ATC and was printed 6 times. 
 I fussy cut various parts of the skull and used silicone glue to adhere the layers together.  When the glue dried completely, I dunked the skull into my UTEE melting pot to give it a glossy look and a good seal.  

For the ATC background, I covered 2.5" x 3.5" card with metal tape and embossed it with my Cuttlebug.  I smeared some jet-black Staz-on ink over the raised edges.  The background looked too bright against the skull so I found some black plastic mesh (from a bag of fruit) and wrapped it around the ATC.  The mesh is secured to the back of the ATC with the metal tape.  I glued my 3D skull to the ATC base with silicone glue.

Thanks for all the kind comments :)
