Day of the Dead: 3 Sugar Skulls

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

 Hi from Laurie!  Here at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity we are celebrating Day Of The Dead.  So I got myself the set of 3 sugar skulls from Lost Coast Designs, and when I started my project for this event, I could not decide which one to use.  So I used them all!!  You can buy each individually in a larger size or the set of  3 Small Skulls.

And since I decided to use all three, I decided to stick with a color scheme.   I started by stamping my skulls on white card stock with black ink.  Then I colored each using Copic sketch markers, in colors of red, orange, black, and yellow.  I left the teeth white and just outlined around them with a fine point black marker.  I added some googly eyes - I think it kind of makes them come to life.  Then simple mounting on a piece of Halloween scrapbook paper layered with white then black card stock.  These sugar skulls look good in almost any color combinations, so be creative and go crazy!!

  2. This is gorgeous. I love the colours, and the googly eyes, and the fact that you left that flower without. It looks like a pirate eye patch, only more flowery. Bwahahaahaahaa. Hugz
