Charmed, I'm Sure

Something a little different to share today, a cute Halloween charm bracelet.

I used the IndigoBlu Hocus Pocus stamp set and stamped them direct to some shrink film.  Despite using the printable kind the ink didn’t dry properly, or perhaps, I just didn’t wait long enough.  At any rate I wasn’t willing to get my Copics all dirty so I got out my Wink of Stella pens and coloured the image up with them before giving the charms a blast from my heat gun to shrink them.

My stash isn’t as well stocked as I thought so I only had a shiny silver chain to hang the charms off rather than something aged looking that would have suited the Halloween theme better.  I did have some real watch bits in my stash to add between the charms for some added interest.

This week’s Through the Purple Haze challenge theme is Anything Goes with IndigoBlu so I’m linking my bracelet over there.  Still loads of Halloween challenges going on, the one at Animal Friends suited this project as it required an animal also; well I have few, an owl, a raven, some bats and a spider so I’m entering their challenge as well as Craftin’ Boutique’s Halloween challenge.
