heart the art: week 35 (death!)

in a week which did not feature a fabulous reaper swap, i might have had to think for quite a while about what i'd say for this week's HEART the ART prompt, which is... (cue creepy vincent price style organ music) ...DEATH! luckily, this was a week that did feature a fabulous reaper swap, and my brand new tyggereye art stamp was burnin' a hole in my creative pocket, so it was easy peasy to make my page! :)

(hand-carved rrubber stamps: tyggereye art; patterned paper: basic grey, cosmo cricket, crafty secrets, daisy d's + notebook paper + wild faux bois digi-paper by andrea victoria, designer digitals; glossy black cardstock: ranger; label die: nestabilities; inks: stewart superior, ranger, colorbox; pen: uniball; tiny black pearls: kaiser; adhesives: tombow monorunner, uhu gluestick, 3m foam tape; other: sewing machine, manual typewriter)

speaking of fabulous reapers, inspired by said swap, my lovely blogging friend susan culotti sent me this awesome digi-stamp that she created specially!

how awesome is that??!?! i ♥LOVE♥ him! i especially love his little smile! thank you so much, sue! btw, if you sort of recognize that name, it may be because in addition to her own very cool personal blog, random on purpose, susan hosts a weekly inspiration/challenge blog called 52 card pickup, where the prompts are always cool and thought-provoking and sue's art is constantly fabulous!
