Skull Appreciation Day 2012 Blog Hop!

It’s Skull Appreciation Day!!  Woo Hoo!  I’m very excited to participate in this year’s blog hop that is being put on by Smeared Ink.  The full hop list can be found at the bottom of this post.  This hop has some amazing sponsors and awesome prizes, so make sure you check everything out! 

So, I tried to use a skull stamp(from Smeared Ink) on canvas, but it turns out that stamping on stretched canvas doesn’t always work well.(at least not for me)  So my amazingly talented friend teamed up with me and used that stamp as the basis for the creation you see below.  I think I got the skull stamp with the bow from a dollar bin at Michael’s or somewhere.  It was a lot of fun to make this piece.  I love painting!  Thanks for all your help, Britany!!
