Skull Pendant & Teen Scene Christmas Release Day! Day 14 of 31 Days of Halloween

Hello guys and ghouls! It’s Day 14 of the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! And  I made another pendant to share with you today. Fridays are officially “Smeared Ink Days” for the 31 Days…where you are challenged to only use Smeared Ink stamps. I did it last week and I’m doing it again this week.

This pendant was made the same way as the heart one I showed yesterday. Translucent clay, baked, and colored with alcohol inks. If you don’t recognize this skull, it’s also from the Quoth the Raven set, as was the heart.

Check out how well all the detail shows on the clay. The next pic has the flash on, but it’s more in focus…

The macro setting on my camera just doesn’t work too well in lower light conditions. I think I’ll be making more of this guy for my Etsy shop too! And now it’s time for some Christmas!

This is Betty as Sally! How pretty she is!  I must say, I am very happy with her hair. I don’t normally do red hair, but Sally had to have red!

I love her little batty friend too! He’s the cutest! I used a wacky mess of papers for this card, to mimic her patchwork dress.

And now I have Christian  trying to woo Sally!

What a cute couple!  Again, I used an unusual combination of papers for this one….and I had to get some stripes in there!

I used my watercolor markers on both of the images. Sally’s hair is better in the first card though…

I added the “Got Mistletoe?”  (from Inkadinkado) because I thought it was perfect for this card. And I used some leftover spider web boarder punch that I made with mirrored paper.

There is one other image that is being released today, but I will be showing that off to you tomorrow. You can see it over at the Simply Betty Stamps Blog though. Be sure to hop over to the rest of the SBS DT and the Wicked Bloggers. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spook-tacular day!
