#117 Mini me, Frida skull necklace.

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hello, stamp friends, Riet here.
What a great challenge Gail (teamleader) has given us.
Mini me, love it.
This challenge really sparked my imagination. 
I love shrink foil, so that was the solution to make something small.
And this is the result, a Frida skull necklace.
Hope you enjoy it.

This is what you need to make the necklace.
White shrink foil.
Markers or pencils
Stazon Jet black

First we start with stamping the Frida skull.
Color it, keep in mind that you keep the colors light,
When the foil is heatted and shrinks the colors will be much darker.
Cut it out and heat it in oven or with the heattool.
Read the instructions on the shrink foil package.
Next step is to take a die and cut it out on your machine.
Dont have a die cut machine? no worry, you can cut a form with a scissors.

Dont forget to make the holes, make them big because of the shrinking.
Mine where as big as a pencil.

Stamp with the stazon the fourth demension stamp.

Now wait till the ink is completely dry.
When not dry it can smug when you shrink it.
Now you glue the skull on the background

Attach a few metal rings through the holes, like on the picture.

continue to assemble the chain as shown on the picture.

I hope you have as much fun with this necklage as I had.
Thanks for reading my post, and have fun with making your own juwelry.

Dont forget to show your mini me on the LCD blog in the challenge.
You have a chance to win some rubberstamps.
And please read the rules first.
