Headhunter Hello

Hello.  Welcome.  We have had a week of hot, hot, hot and sun, sun, sun so I have been muchly in the garden.  A little rain this afternoon reawakened Mr. Mojo.  The Mod Squad Challenge really caught my eye and then Mr Postman brought some Sugar Skull stamps I was lucky enough to win in the Sin City blog hop and well........

I stamped the Sin City Female Sugar Skull on black and white card using Versamark ink and embossed with black and white powder, cut and spliced them and then cut using Sizzix TH Stitched Oval dies.  I cut the frame with the same die set from some chalkboard papers.  The background panel is from the same chalkboard papers cut with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die.  I used Sizzix alpha dies for the Head Hunter greeting and added some stitch detail with my black and white gel pens.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
