Bombshell Hump Day Skelly Hop

     This month over at Bombshell Stamps we decided to have skeletons as the main theme of our October Hop. It could be for Halloween, Day of the Dead, or just because you like skeletons.  We were also encouraged to create something decorative or ornamental, not just a card.   Now all the lovely ghouls participating in this hop have created some wonderful things to share with you. So if you have just joined in, why not start at the beginning at the Bombshell Blog.  If you have arrived here from Alaine's MissAlaineous' Mosaics you are in the right place at the right time.

     Here is my creation for this month.  It is very simple yet looks great when lit up.  All the skeletons flicker and dance around the light.

     I used the skeleton from the Retro Cowgirl stamp set.  This was a very quick and easy project and makes a great Halloween gift.  Simply measure some vellum the length and width of a cylinder clear candle, stamp your image in black, distress and tape the seam together.  I also added a little bling to my skeleton's eye as that makes them glow in the dark.  Now how quick and easy is that?  Of course, if you want, it is simple to add a little color, Day of the Dead sugar skulls look great in this project also.

      Now, off you go to Stemplelientje's Stamp Creations, where she will have another great project for you.

Happy Halloween, Day of the Dead, and All Saints Day.
