Skull Appreciation Day Blog Hop: "Tea Addiction Too"!

Happy Skull Appreciation Day!  If you've been hopping with us then you arrived here from the clawesome IKE, if not then the blog roll is below so you can join the fun too!  I'm sharing two projects for S.A.D today, this one and a 2nd over at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity which is your next stop on the hop!

Today is also Day 1 of Lost Coast Portal to Creativity's 2nd annual SKELLIE-FEST and you're all invited to enter your Skull projects in our linky party for the chance to win a awesome shopping spree at Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda!

Tea Addication Too

My S.A.D project today is the 2nd in a mini series I'm working on called "Tea Addication" for the Rick St Dennis Elite DT.  I do love a good cup of tea and Alice in Wonderland and Skulls, combine them all and this is what you get, heheheheh ;0)  Click on all the photos for a closer look.

I couldn't resist showing off my new Alice, she's a Pullip doll called Sepia Alice from the Romantic AIW line.
I performed digi magic in Photoshop CS6 and merged two RSD images, "What's Left After" and "Mad Tea Party" and printed out onto Neenah solar white cardstock.   I used Copics, Prismacolor pencils and a white gel pen to colour the image and Derwent Chalk pencils blended with a Dove Blender Pen on the background.  I also applied Tea Dye and Black Soot Distress inks to the background and added more shading around the image with a Prismacolour pencil as well.  I layered the design onto blue cardstock, then onto black cardstock and decorated the two corners with a Sizzix accent die cut from black cardstock.  I couldn't resist adding some dimensional shimmer and applied Viva le Pearl transparent magic white to the spiderweb.

Here's my 1st "Tea Addiction" project

Now hop on to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity to see my next project, here's a sneaky peek...FYI the Portal post will be up at 8am PST so please hop back if you're in a different time zone...and then join us every day through to June 13 for tons of skull and skellie goodness!
