Day 8 of 31 Days of Halloween: Calaveras Fiesta Pendant

Welcome to day 8! I am combining today's Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween post with the new Muse Monday post over at the Bombshell Stamps Blog. What's Muse Monday? Well, you'll need to visit the Bombshell Blog to find out!

I made this pendant using the Calaveras Fiesta set. I had a piece of wood that I painted white, then I stamped the skeleton with Versa Craft ink. I added a bit of color, then added the tassels and embossed them.

Can you see the bits of glitter in the embossing powder on the top of the pendant? I used my Crafter's Workshop Mini Punchinella stencil with alcohol inks on the side.

This was fun (and quick!). I have been itching to make some pendants...and I have a few more planned for the month. But now it's time for you to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They are all posted on my side bar. And don't forget to visit the Bombshell Blog to get the scoop on Muse Monday! Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!


Fun skellie and great embossing!
