Day of the Dead Stamps by Sheena Douglass

Another projects us these fab stamps.  This is for my sons 19th Birthday next week.  He plays the guitar so thought it was perfect.  It just needs the sentiment adding.
I started by inking the background with Distress Inks in Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo and Adirondak Pesto.  Once that was done, I stamped around the edges with the music stamp, then I used the Skull die and just inked through it, to get the ghost like faces, then I ran it though an embossing folding and added some Gilding Wax when it was done.
Now for the toppers, they're all cut with the Dies from this set then stamped.  I cut the guitar and hat from black card, and coated with the 3 different colours of Gilding Wax, Silver, Empire Gold and Renaissance Gold.  These dies are brilliant as you can cut them and pose the skeleton however you want.  I just had to add the cat too.... lol.
Thanks for looking.
