Skelekinz tag

You know what Monday means, right? It's time for a new Macabre Monday challenge at the Haunted Design House blog, and this week the theme is "Body Bags and Toe Tags" We want you to create or alter a bag or tag, or use one in your creation. I went for a tag, using one of the wonderful Skelekinz digis from Bugaboo, I love their creepy-cute innocence :)
Here are the challenges I'd like to enter:
Now a few of the challenges are to either try something new or create your own embellishment, and those skulls are my qualification for both. I've been able to 3D things in PSP for a while, but I've never tried to create a 3D metal object before. However, I couldn't find just the right embellishment for this piece and none of the metal embellies I had matched the love text so they just looked odd together. So I had a play and ended up with these skulls, which I think may well end up getting a lot of use, as I love them :D
Some Odd Girl - make your own embellishment (skulls)

Truly Scrumptious - followed the sketch
Tuesday Throwdown - tags
Creative Card Crew - gothic
A Spoon Full of Sugar - tags

Order of the Opus Gluei - new tricks (my skulls, I can do 3D metal now, yay!)

Stamp Something - digital

Your tag is wonderful. I love that little girl. She's just adorable. In a creepy sort of way. LOL. I love that you learned how to make 3-D metal embellies in PSP. Those skulls look fantastic. Thanks so much for playing along with us at OPUS GLUEI. Love seeing your creations.

Susan, this is AWESOME. I love the purple and black together and how you colored the little Skelekinz girl...she looks adorable (for a skelekinz anyway :) ) Great job on making the skulls too...that's amazing. Thanks so much for joining the Catch the Bug Challenge. I hope you'll join us again next time.

Oh, I'm sorry it's taken me this long to leave a comment (I thought I had, whoops, sorry). She is creepy cute and I have to admit, I rather like THAT! The skulls came out cool (never thought I'd type that phrase) and the metal effect is perfect.

Thanks so much for sharing your project with us at Opus Gluei!
