31 Days of Halloween. Day 23, Halloween 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 everybody, here a new post from Riet.
I made a Halloween necklace for Halloween.
Here is what I used and how I made it.
I used:
I would like to point out that,
 these stamps are very large which makes them very suitable for shrink foil.
If the stamp is too small, a small image will remain after shrinking.
Which you can barely see.

                                       Shrink plastic, in the Netherlands its cald "krimpie Dinkie".
Black Stazon
Color pencils or markers.
We r memory keepers- Multi hole punch
Metal chain
metal rings
2 small pliers
pencil for drawing.

I started by printing the stamp with stazon and letting it dry well.
With a pencil I drew a shape around the print and cut it out.
Be very careful to punch the holes first.
You have to cut this as shown in the photo.
This is where the rings will hang later.

Erase all pencil lines after cutting.
Now you can color the image.
Do this with light colors and fairly thin.
The melting will make the color much darker.

After heating it with the heattool it looks like this.
Now we repeat all this again with 4 x a bone of the large skeleton.
And dont forget to punch the wholes.

I colored the bones with a sand color.

Now we attach the rings and the chain to it.
And you are done.
Hope you had fun with this tutorial.

It would be great if you also join our Halloween challenge. 
Make a card, tag, mixed media project or whatever you can think of. 
If only it has some stamping on it. 
 You don't even have to use the Lost Coast stamps,
Other brands are also allowed.
So come and take a look at our challenge blog and join us.
You maybe the winner of new rubber stamps.

Fabulous Riet, you’ve really got the colours to glow on the shrunken piece and the bone connectors are such a great design choice - love it!
