Bat and Spiderweb Necklace: Day 22 of 31

Hello! It's Day 22 of the 31 Days of Halloween, and today I have a necklace to share with you. I always try to do at least one piece of jewelry, and I often try to incorporate Shrinky Dinks (shrink plastic) into a piece because it's a lot of fun to see how my big stamps work when they are really tiny.

I have an older stamp set from Inkadinkado that my sister gave me. I haven't used the set too often, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to play with it. The spider web is really big; about the size of an ATC. So I knew it would shrink down to a good size. The bats were pretty big too, so they were going to make good accents for the web. I just played around with some beads I had. I knew I wanted to use red, as for some reason I don't have a lot of necklaces with red. Plus, I had the fabulous red links i used for the back of the necklace that I haven't used before, and I was itching to.

I stamped the images with StazOn ink from Imagine, and the Shrinky Dinks I used had one side pre-sanded. I think the charms turned out great. Have you used Shrinky Dinks in your projects before? I'd love to read about what you've done with them. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

I love your necklace! I think it is really pretty.
Oh, this is just lovely! That spider web came out
awesome! I haven't used shrink dinks in a very long
time. I have some left and have been thinking about it ...

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
