Skull Castle Jude!


It's time for a blog hop!!! The last image from the new Simply B Stamps collection is what we are showcasing today, and I know you are all going to love him! I am happy to introduce you to Skull Castle Jude!

How cute is he?!? I just love what he is building! I need to try to construct this myself...with a little help from my kids, of course!

I used the same dotty technique (yes, I made that name up) for the sand, as I did with Miller. I like how it turned out. I used mostly Copics for this image, with a few watercolor markers.

I used some twine on the side of the card (which I inked), as I thought it gave the card some nice texture. Playing in the sand is definitely something I could go for right now. It's so relaxing.
I hope you have enjoyed this release! I know that I did! Please be sure to visit everyone in the hop. You don't want to miss a thing! Here is the full hop list.

Great image, beautifully colored. I call that the "Dotty Technique" too. So, if two of us do, it's official!

BTW, I can so see you and your kids making a skull castle.
