Day 7 of 31: Alter Skulls ATC

Wow! One week down already?! That's the only part of the 31 Days of Halloween that I dislike. It's the counting. It makes the month go so fast for me. I'd like to thank everyone that gave me such wonderful suggestions on yesterday's slate. When I finish it off, I will post a new pic.

For today's offering, I have an ATC that was made with Alter Skulls from Bombshell Stamps. Alter Skulls is this month's featured set for Muse Monday, so that means it's on sale! This set is just perfect for the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween.

I colored this awesome image with my Spectrum Noir markers. I wanted to play along with this week's Wicked Wednesday challenge, which is voodoo dolls or stitching. So I faux stitched around the edge of my ATC. I really didn't want to do too much to my background, since the image has so much going on.

Of course, you should be off to check out the rest of the fabulous Wicked Bloggers, but you should also swing by the Bombshell Blog to see what other creations have been made featuring this set. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!
