Day 4!!!!

 Welcome to the 5th day of this awesome hop!!!! How's it going today??? Today is a Dead of the Day inspired piece. So, this is one of my favorite and least favorite (ok, so not really, I made this for me, then ended up cutting it too small for my wrist and I was flippin' pissed). I started off by painting muslin with bubblegum pink paint, the stamp Mary from Bombshell Stamps (which is one of my favorites), with Staz-on ink.
I colored her in with sharpies. I don't have fine enough paint brushes to get it as fine as I want with paint. After I finished her I learned about fine tipped nail brushes in a Facebook group I'm in. For around $2, I'll try them! I will be making another and making damn sure I cut it to my size!!! You know Teresa has something good for y'all!! Enjoy! Lisa

Don't you hate it when that happens! It looks fabulous though, so bright and ethereal. Perfect for Day of the Dead.

Shame you messed up the size on this as I am sure it would look fabulous!! The pom poms are gorgeous and that bubblegum pink really catches the eye!
