I used Dilly Bean stamp #340 Frida's sugar skull for this pendant. I colored the image with colored pencils and blended with mineral spirits. I then scanned my colored image and saved it on the computer. I removed the background in PSE and pasted it onto a digital paper from Create with TLC. After I printed out the image, I covered it with contact paper (packing tape works also). I then glued it to my repurposed memory game piece with Mod Podge. After attaching the image, let it dry and then cut off the excess. I held it up to a light to center the design on the chipboard. I did the same with the backside. The edges are inked with a gold sharpie. Use a small hole punch for two holes and then add your jewelry hardware. Easy Peasy!

Very pretty! I like the colours you chose. They give the pendant an oriental feel
