Day 10 of 31: Sugar Skull

I always need to do at least one Day of the Dead project for every 31 Days of Halloween. So for Day 10, I have a project using a fabulous Sugar Skull from Dilly Beans.

I love Megan's Sugar Skulls, they're always fun to color. I used my Zig Clean Color markers for this one. For my background, I used the Waves and Dots Stencil from Dreamweaver (via Stampendous), along with several colors of Dylusions Sprays. I of course flipped the sprayed up stencil on to a new piece of paper to get the negative image, and so that I don't waste any of that fabulous spray. I'll use that part another day.

Because the sprays are so easy to work with, this is another card that came together fairly quickly. And right now, I am all about getting things done fast.

A little ribbon and a black mat was the only other additions I really needed to get this card done. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers by checking out the links on my side bar. I also have another post up today that is not Halloween, so I would love it if you took a peek. You can find it HERE.

I have to get a sugar skull.
I think they are fascinating.
Love how you used a partial skull
with the waves and Dots. The
movement fits in with the skull.
thanks for sharing a wonderful card.

This sugar skull is awesome. And using Dylusions Sprays with the stencils makes a really beautiful background. Love your card.
Sheer magic! I am not usually a Sugar Skull fan but this one is lovely! TFS!
