I'm sharing 2 projects today, a fun mini tea light luminary here and an altered domino trinket box over on my DominoART blog!

Triangle Tea Light Luminary
I used the following Lost Coast Designs stamps
Black Nose Sugar Skull, White Nose Sugar Skull,  Sugar Skull With Flower
the lace border is part of the Picado Skull stamp 

so pretty in the evening with the tea light glow
it really glows in complete darkness
Here's what it looks like in daylight!

3 sided luminary
This was a fairly easy project to do and they make fun little home decor gifts.

I started out by stamping the White Nose Sugar Skull in black StazOn ink on clear acetate overlay and applied Watermelon and Sunshine Yellow Ranger Adirondack Brights Alcohol Ink with an ink applicator to the opposite side.  To make the luminary frame I started with a the front window panel and cut the window to fit the skull and stamped the lacy border from the Picado Skull stamp with Aurora - tri-colour Brilliance ink.  Then adhered the acetate to the inside with double sided tape.  I then cut a double panel to form the other two sides of the triangular shaped luminary and stamped them with the other two sugar skull stamps and the lacy border.  The panels were scored on my scoreboard and the two end flaps adhered to the inside of the front panel with double sided tape.  I completed my luminary with metallic gold applied to all the edges with a gold Promarker.

Thanks for visiting with me today!
