This is gorgeous!  Though I admit I didn't see the skull until the second picture.  I like it, though.  It's very subtle.

I love those!

Which WSS did you use? Mine's like a thin plastic & tears from the stitches before the designs finished every time I use it

Look for Ultra Solvy in your craft store, it's four times as thick as normal Solvy. Personally, I'm a huge fan of Badgemaster, and I do a lot of Urban Threads' FSL designs. I've only been able to find it online though.

I don't use the film type because of the same problem; even WITH ultra solvy lol!!
I use the type that looks like sew-on-light interfacing. I don't know the name because I bought it off the roll in a fabric store.

Very cool.  I use the stuff off the roll in the fabric store as well.  I'll use two layers if I am worried about it pulling.  I haven't had much luck with the solvy/ultra solvy/film/type stablizers.
