Skull Appreciation Day Blog Hop with Smeared and Smudged!

Howzit Dominoians!
Welcome to the 2nd of my blogs playing in this year's Skull Appreciation Day Blog Hop hosted by the fabulous Smeared and Smudged team!  Thanks so much for hopping with us today!

a peek at my entire S.A.D collection
Here's the blog roll to keep you going and if you stopped by here first then start the hop at the beginning on Black Dragon's blog, you do not want to miss all the fangtastic skullie eye candy being shared today!

 Here's my 2nd Smeared and Smudged DT project for today - an Amazonian Amulet found in the clutches of a doomed treasure hunter!
Doublecross Domino "Amazonian Amulet"
I used one of Smeared Ink's feathered skull rubber stamps from their Fringe set on this one.
I stamped the wooden Doublecross domino with black Archival Ink, heat set the image and then coloured the design with Sharpie markers in my signature Sharpie Domino Queen technique.  I then added a red and gold tear drop sticker jewel to the feathered head piece.  To complete the necklace I wired wrapped the domino a few times with thin black craft wire with the skull charm attached and added the bail by twisting the wire on one of the passes round.  The skull charm was silver toned so I coloured it with a brown Sharpie to give it a more aged gold tone and then added the brown suede cord necklace to complete the look.

Hop on over to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity to see 3 more of S.A.D projects and one of them is another domino ;0)  Today is also the start of our 1st Skellie-Fest event that runs through to June 18th with a $20 gift certificate to spend at Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda!
Don't forget to return after the hop and play to win!

Domino Hugs!
