Greetings and salutations! Today is day 21 (yikes!) of the Smeared & Smudged 31 days of Halloween. Today is also Monday,which means it’s Muse Monday over at the Bombshell Blog. So I decided to work again with this month’s featured set, which is Alter Skulls. This is a new set for me, and I am really having fun with it!
I made a charm using the pre-frosted Shrinky Dinks. I stamped the image with Staz-On (as per the recommendation on the package) and then I colored the image with colored pencils. And boy does my hand ache now! Oh well…its’s the price we pay for making our art sometimes, right? 😉
The holes were punched, and then I got out my embossing gun and shrunk this bad boy. I added two jump rings and threw it on to a ball chain. Though, I would like to make it a proper beaded necklace (perhaps with some chain), when I have some more time. I love how vibrant the colors get after you shrink a piece. Have you worked with Shrinky Dinks before? I love them. So go on ahead and visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, listed in my side bar, as well as some of the other Bombshell girls that have posted for this week’s Muse Monday. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!
