Skull and Crossbones Carved Stamp

This Exquisite Corpse Project is well underway. I am really enjoying it and am looking forward to receiving the entries from other participants in the group. We are "decorating" the backs of the pages and including contact information. I thought a carved stamp of a Skull and Crossbones would be a nice addition for the backs of mine. It's nice how the white ink prints up a rather ghostly looking image on the black card stock. I am enjoying this project so much (as are several other players) that we are thinking of continuing after this book is completed. The possibilities are just endless and need to be explored well beyond just this one book.

Ingrid - terrific stamp! Perfect for your project. Love how it turned out on the black. I made one similar last year for some faux tattoo stamping on kids at our Halloween party :) Have fun with your EC - hope you'll share about here as it evolves. Thanks for showing your carving to the team.

Wow - this can be used in so many ways at so many different times - Halloween, poison symbol, little boys pirate dreams... or just for some gothic kind of theme. Great fun!
