It's Week 2 for our Whole Lotta Rosie Challenge at Haunted Design House. What's that, you say? We either want to see roses on your deliciously dark project, or a fat chick named Rosie, (or AC/DC, but you've gotta visit the Blog for that explanation). Easy peasy, eh? My hubby frequently gives me a ration of S*** for all the stuff I save, but this time I hit the mother load with this fabulous bag. Roses? I've got ROSES! (in the shape of a heart, no less) The fabulous stamps were generously offered by Lisa Tyrell in celebration of the Left of Center One Year Anniversary.
Here's a closeup of the gorgeous skull, complete with a giant rose, no less! I didn't really have to do much coloring, just the rose, since Lisa's shading is so fab, but I did print it 4 times and fussy cut to give her dimension and added some Stickles to the rose and some gems.
And the skellie goblet. OOOHhh!!!! It's printed three times on white and once on matte metallic, fussy cut, popped and encrusted with jewels. WooHoo!
Here's the dimensional shot. And tell me that bag wasn't begging to be altered!
And of course, my sentiments, exactly. I'm entering this in Left of Center Challenge under the LOC theme, the very FIRST ATG/Skulls challenge at A Step in the Dark, That Craft Place Alter a Can / Alter It challenge, AND (I'm truly going to hell for this) the "Y" is for Your Mama Challenge at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers (which of course, just BEGS for an explanation) Hope it's ok it's not a card.
It's no secret that I LOVE my wine. My mother, however, was not so thrilled about how MUCH I love my wine and affectionately (?) referred to me as "her little Wino". Personally, I thought she needed to chill, so were she still with us, this would have been her Mother's Day gift bag. (and since she's not, I think the skull is appropriate.) xxx
