Skull with Poppies: Day 22 of 31

Hello and welcome to an on-time posting! I did manage to finally get up yesterday's post, so if ya missed it, feel free to scroll on down to it. So it's Day 22, and it's also a Wednesday, so that means I have a new Wicked Wednesday ATC for you. This week, we are sponsored by the amazing Aurora Wings, and the theme is Day of the Dead. I took a bit of a different take on the theme.

I used Memento Mori. And I didn't go with the typical Sugar Skull. Isn't this a fabulously creepy image? I used alcohol markers as well as watercolor markers for this.

Didn't need too much more, since i had this fabulous paper. I used some cool skully washi tape and a bit of Distress Stickles. That's about it! I hope you'll play along. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spooktacular day!
