text-align: center;"> <a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-kFUt_PeVBes/U2GMw7IDW7I/AAAAAAAAGHk/wERbTzpF2ig/s1600/SugarSkullsGameEarringsNecklace1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-kFUt_PeVBes/U2GMw7IDW7I/AAAAAAAAGHk/wERbTzpF2ig/s1600/SugarSkullsGameEarringsNecklace1.jpg" height="400" width="400" /></a></div> <br /> All 3 game pieces were stained first with Brilliance Rocket Red ink and the images stamped with black Archival Ink.&nbsp; I stained and stamped the sides too and stamped sections of the floral part of the Picado Skull image.&nbsp; I used a black Sharpie marker to edge all of the game pieces edges including all the corners.&nbsp; I sealed all the pieces with a couple of coats of Krylon Artist's Workable Fixative spray and then applied Judikins Diamond Glaze to all the surfaces leaving the black eye and nose sockets to create wicked dimension.<br /> <br /> I used pre-drilled dominoes for the earrings from Tall Mouse and attached the skull charms and earring findings with wire.&nbsp; The Rummy tile is too thin to drill through so I glued the wire to the back of the piece with E6000 glue.&nbsp; The pendant is hung on a really cool rubbery black cord with a built in closure!<br /> <br /> See you again for Day 2's project by DominoARTist Val S on May 3rd! <br /> <br /> Domino Hugs!</div> <div style="text-align: center;"> <i><b><a href="http://www.mylivesignature.com/" target="_blank"><img src="http://signatures.mylivesignature.com/54489/254/9AFD466AE40CCD33680157083652C26C.png" style="background: transparent;

 Halloween is one of DominoART's favourite holidays and we love to celebrate Half-O-Ween in May just like Christmas in July!  

 I will be featuring one FANGTASTIC project on my DominoART blog every 2nd day throughout May created by my 
Petrifying Players!

At the end of May they will be in the running for some spooktacular prizes and vying for your votes!  So stop by, gobble up all their clawesome eye candy and then show them how much their scary projects delightfully terrified you by voting for your favourites starting May 27!
