For this blog hop, we are featuring stamps
 Designed by Michelle Frae Cummings!
This stamp set has a total of 4 skulls and 10 extra stamps for you to create with.

And now to my  blog hop projects:
The first is this Mixed Media chipboard printers tray that I made with a lot of background stamping using different Sin City stamps  and I used the Sugar Scull as a head of my chipboard skeleton.
I made this weird figure as his own kind of wonderful.
By this I mean that each and every person is a wonderful one. It doesn't matter if you are different. You are still your own kind of wonderful and believe me, the more you think that you are- the more of other people will take you as a such.


Here are some more photos of this project:

 And a close- up to the Sugar Scull that was stamped with blue pigmented ink, heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then colored with permanent markers.


The background stamping was also heat embossed and colored.



 And as I loved those Sculls a lot, I added another project: two clay magnets.
I really love those sculls keeping some boring notes on my fridge.

I made my own molds using ETI mold material and then casted two sculls into my homemade molds with Makin's Clay Black non baking polymer clay.
It took around 24 hours for clay to be dry and then I painted the casted sculls with Pearl Ex powders mixed with Gum Arabic (as these powders are not permanent without the add- on).
Two piece of magnets were glued on the back and I love those beauties a lot.
I really hope that you like them too!
So now it's a time to leave me a mice comment and to move to the next blog on the list.
Remember- you need to comment in all our blogs in order to win one of 3!! sets we give away!
