Well Happy WOYWW everyone here is my space this week still working on those Christmas cards while today I found sometime to work on the skull and boy is he looking freaky I've added on some clay to create horns and weird tendrils from his mouth Now I'm just waiting on the clay to dry it will get lighter and then I'll be able to paint him up some more. I'm also trying some to make eyes we will see how they turn out once dry and painted up.

So I will try my best to get around to as many spaces as I can 
this week

Now for Something Different

Now this isn't a normal card I would make but Why not try something different
Artistic Stamper has a challenge Patterns so I choose to make my own papers using their stamps 
I actually like this and I think it looks really Classy
The Die cut was from my sister and aged it with some more ink and added in some vintage ribbon and little bling .
Paper I made just using stamps and two different inks black and grey to create my 
patterns :)

Happy WOYWW well here's my space I was just colouring some images up for my DT and also on the right is a brick wall I'm thinking of making a tut on how to colour up. Next is how my skull is moving along he needs more colours added to him to make him more depth and more Gross lol

Next is how my skull is moving along he needs more colours added to him to make him more depth and more Gross lol he's a work in progress for sure

Lastly I got a little happy Mail for Judy now I was looking at the little faces she drew and was looking at all the details that I missed the important part of it .... IT spells my name well got a good chuckle out of that but these are some of my fave colours and it's so unique that it is now the only thing posted up on my board at the moment :)

It is that time of the week again where we show off our spaces so here is mine Yep that's a Christmas card right there in the middle I'm trying to figure out embellishment and sentiment part but I have no idea what I want lol (as par normal crafting for me) 

  I'm also working on a new HEAD for Halloween he's still in the working on stage seeing. Not painted and I'm going to maybe add in some more GROSS details before I paint him up even more gross lol.  For those of you wondering this is one of those dollar store crappy skulls they have they can look really amazing when altered up painted and sealed up the last set I made I still have to put out.  He's covered in Tissue Paper and some sort of dollar store paper clay which I really like to work with for this keeps it light. Gonna go see if they have any more. 
Yep he's pretty freaky looking right now but eventually he will look worse lol
Found a picture of my last ones made up . They needed a little touch up last year.
they where covered with paper and moss and flour and water paste 
that's my space at the moment

Well I'm working on a new Winter Pocket letters, couple at the same time as I flip back and forth and one has next to nothing other then the colour done. I find I don't make quick Pocket Letters and one I'm making I haven't hand coloured anything I've been using these wonderful die cuts but it feels funny not hand colouring anything so I think I'm going to add something of my colouring in the mix it's more of a collage Christmas theme this one. Up to the Right is my Bling /Sequin Box ,it's getting rather full but who cares it sparkles ALOT lol  Put them into little mini zip lock baggies so I don't spill them everywhere  One day I will bur for now I'm safe :)
 This a Halloween Pocket letter I just got filled with sequins and lots more sparkly goodness None that I owned at all so I was amazed at all the stash that Denise From a swap group added into the envelope it was really sweet of her I see a lot of shaker cards and if you ever get a card from me there is going to be a really good chance there will be sequins or confetti in it lol
Happy WOYWW hugs Nikki
