Here's Skully - where is Mulder?

I know... My daughters tell me all the time that I am a dorkfish... But I can't help but think of X-files when I am coloring up a skull. For various reasons. And she had so many pretty flowers on her that she had to be Skully (and yes - I do know it is Scully :-) but that doesn't work as well for this now does it? ).

This is from the Susana Loves Stamps September Release and part of the Skellies in the Closet Set. I really wanted to go with a floral themed background paper for this, and knew I needed to keep the DP small or it would just cut off all of the flowers. I found this paper by My Minds Eye, and thought it would be perfect as the background. So I tried to match my colors to it.

The Skull itself is W00, W1 and W3. The leaves are BG70, 72, 75, 78 and the swirls are G24 (kind of reverse of what the paper is. The flowers are a combination of Y32, 35 and E04, E07 and R59.

The sentiment was stamped with white ink, and then embossed with superfine detail white embossing powder.

I am entering Skully into the Sketch Saturday Challenge this week.

Thank you so much for visiting me today. Hope to see you back again soon!
