Skeleton Band

Hello my crafting friends, what ever must you think of me, so sorry for putting this up with no information!!!
I know it is pretty obvious what the card is of lol!!! Briefly the background was made by coating the card in Aquatints then shaking a layer of salt over the top and leaving it to dry. This give the card a lovely texture but also a unique pattern made by the salt so every one will be different.

I stamped the corner stamps and edging stamps using Stazon Black ink then inked round the edge with Black Soot distress ink.

I added each skeleton doing the different pose with their arms and heads on each one depending on what instrument they were playing.

Each instrument I stamped with the flower stamps in the collection and coloured them in, I then gave them a couple of coats of Spray & Shine as this gave a glossy look to the instruments.

I made each skeleton a hat out of Black card and drew the design on each with a White Gel pen, placing each skeleton on the card where I wanted them and the card was finished.

I hope those of you who have watched any of the shows have enjoyed Sheena's demos.

I will in future put up the image an description on future posts at the same time lol!

Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx
