Finally inked my skull

Another VSN challenge card. Challenged to use a set you don't like, I knew I'd go for Just Jawing. I earned this set a couple months ago, and while I'd mounted it, I never expected to use it. Looking for a color inspiration, I saw the stitched Regal Rose ribbon, and I was off! I'm not sure you can see it in this picture, but the skull is mounted on dimensionals over the crossed bones behind. I watercolored the skull in pink for pop and so that I had the option of coloring in a little more dimension. This ribbon usually is also stitched across the top, but it was too wide for where I'd (ahem) slapped on my sentiment. A couple brads for a more industrial/heavier feel.

I'm really pleased with this card, because it came out much better than expected. I'm thinking I may make my neice's birthday card using this set. She'll be 12 this year, and I've been wondering what to do for her card.

Darn! I was hoping you meant that you got a tattoo on your head!

p.s. The card is cute, too.

I think this card would be great for a 12 year old girl. Not exactly your stamping style, the whole skull theme.
