beginings of a skull adventure

Happy Thursday everyone!
Due to all the fuss about the Skull Appreciation Day coming up (June 4) I was looking threw my stamps for what I have for skulls and found so many Smeared Ink ones that would work! So I busted out my As Death stamp set to play around a bit and begin my skull adventure...and here is what I came up really got me in the skully I needed it ;)

For my background paper I painted it purple then smeared a black ink pad all over it. I colored my image with colored pencils then used some paint thinner to blend my colors (new technique I found) I stamped and cut out my favorite quote for this set, and lastly I made some super cool paper buttons (using parts of another as death stamp) another technique I picked up today...this one came from Creepy Glowbugg's blog.
and here is a close up of the buttons...I just love em!

and there I have my super cool card! now onto create more skull things :) be sure to stop by the forum and join us for skull appreciation Day
