The 31 Days of Halloween - Day 31

Welcome to the final day!! Wow, I can't believe I actually made it. You know 31 projects are a lot, especially when you consider that is probably what I make in a years time, lol. Today I have a super cute project to share, those cool skeletal hands are back, I happened to buy about a dozen of them off Amazon for ten bucks. I think I will CASE those zombie hands in a flower pot with a few next year.

Anyway, I saw these great hair dohickies the other day, I think over at Retro Art Gallery using these hands holding a little cameo. This is my take -



The stamp is from the ching chou kuik collection at Sweet Pea Stamps. I used Amazing Goop Adhesive to hold it all together. To begin with I adhered about six inches of a inexpensive beaded necklace to the hand. I stamped the image on white cardstock, punched it out and also punched another oval from cereal box to adhere it to to sturdy it up. I colored it with copics and then gave it a good coating of Diamond Glaze and allowed it to dry overnight. The next day I attached some ecru, ruffled lace around the oval on the backside and adhered it to the palm of the hand. On the back of the hand I attaced a sturdy rubberband and allowed it all to dry overnight.

this has been a lot of fun, I have really enjoyed all your comments and hope that you will continue to stop by from time to time - good luck trick or treating tonight!
