Papelitos Guest Designer - 2nd Time

Whoo Hoo!  I've been asked to be the guest designer for Papelitos 18th Challenge - Music.  I love me a singing boogieman, don't you?  And Stewart is just fabulous.  When I got this digital stamp, I envisioned Stewart as a very well dressed ghoul.  Somehow with a striped vest, he doesn't look so scary, right?  I paper pieced much of this image.  I have a huge stack of paper that I had cut down from 12x12 years ago and every once in a while I drag it out for paper piecing.  Most pieces are 5x7 and they're easy to run through the printer.  All in all, this was printed four times.  Twice on white cardstock, once for the red striped and once for the gray suit.  I had to fussy cut the suit, vest and one white Stewart, I assembled one Stewart and popped it up over the one printed with the music.  His suit has been colored with C3, C1 and C0.  I looked to the internet for words to a song he could be singing as he walked along.  I've never heard this one, but you have to admit the words are wonderfully fitting.  And, I think the skull is really a lantern so I added some yellow Stickles to the eye.  This is my second and last guest design spot for Papelitos and I hope I'm asked back, I love these images.

Recipe:  Georgia Pacific 110lb cardstock, stash design paper, Yellow and Stardust Stickles, Recollections Pearls, MTC/Cameo Musical Notes cutting file, music background was a clip art image, Copics: [skin G40, G43, G82, R22, R00, C00, B02][Tie R37][Shirt C1][Shoes E55, E57]

Edited to add:  I received the following comment from a reader.  I have no way of knowing who is right and who is wrong - this image is still for sale at the Papelitos web site.  If anyone knows the artist who drew this image, I would love to contact him/her and ask permission to use it.
