A card for the morbid romantic?


skulls in love
Originally uploaded by allisongryski


Some dear and unusual friends recently got married and as they have rather non-traditional tastes (their wedding cake was black and red and decorated with skulls), I decided that a shiny white wedding card wasn't going to really be quite right. So in order to make them a special card, I carved a new stamp... a skull with hearts for eye sockets.

I'm quite pleased with how it turned out and I hope the card made them smile. I now, however, have a stamp that isn't quite in my usual style. I'm debating whether or not I should make some similar cards for my shop or if it really was for an audience of two. So here's the question ... would YOU buy a card with a skull that only has eyes for love? You'll find the poll in the sidebar.

While they obviously aren't for anyone, my immediate thought was "I know a few folks those cards would be PERFECT for!"

Love this, especially the black on pink. I really think they'd be a hit on etsy, too.

It's hard (for me) to vote since the categories didn't quite fit.
It isn't exactly too weird or "eek", (which are great categories, btw) but also I wouldn't buy any.

Having said that, ....
I think you would have some interest on Etsy. Go for it!
