Getting ready for happy hauntings? This image from the Queen Kat Designs Store is sheer terror-ific perfection! The stamp by Kathy Cyr is called Dead Inside Fairy.
It was fun to work with this image. On one side it is a lovely fairy and the other half is a tattered skeleton fairy. It would be a great image for Halloween, a friend who has been ill and is now feeling better, and anyone going through dramatic changes in their life. I colored the image with colored pencils, cut it close to it's true boarders and inked the edges with wisteria ink. I think the ink helps bring the sides together and pop it from the back ground paper. I added two skeleton leaves and jute twine for a bow. The sentiment, in this example reads, beware frightful skeleton.
Have a hauntingly fabulous Saturday, everyone.
