Arriba! Fiesta!

As much as I'd like to take credit for the idea behind this tag, I can't. The fabulous Laura Weed gave me the idea and I ran with it! The fabulous new Skeleton Humor Perfectly™ Clear Stamp set includes the two skeletons and fun accessories so you can create some really fun scenes that are perfect year round!

Without further ado, here's the tag!

  4. Using the stamp positioner, stamp the sombrero and the flowers onto the skeletons' heads.
  5. Color both images, the grass, and the background with Copic markers.
  6. Fix any gaps in the images with a fine black pen.

  3. I had not seen this set. This is a must have. I love the idea of dressing up skeletons. Actually making a skelly with a tutu & crown necklace for a friend's granddaughter.
