Hallo-Scream for Halloween

How about a spooky skull with a Medusa touch? I used the skull from the Tim Holtz Apothecary stamp, drew my own swirls, curls and earrings to resemble Medusa. 



The eyes were stained with Festive Berries then Glossy Accents was applied. 

Hallo-scream was stamped on mulberry paper. I applied a little water to the mulberry paper and pulled gently around the edges.


The skull stamp was matted with red paper for a little pop and matted again with the black and white paper from the Pebbles - Thirty One paper pad. Black plastic straws were slit and added to the edges for a frame. The white plastic netting was a fresh fruit or vegetable wrapper. I attached it to the frame to complete the project as a door hanger.
