Hello everyone and welcome to our:
Hola y Bienvenidos a nuestro Blog Hop del


Thank you for joining us in celebrating Day of the Dead/El Dia de los Muertos with us!
We have a super cool line-up for you! Now, if you are here from Monica
then, you are heading in the right direction! But, if you happen to be visiting and want to hop with us make sure you start over with Abby, out blog host!
Muchas gracias por venir a celebrar el Dia de los Muertos con nosotras!
Tenemos unas chicas super talentosas participando con nosotros en este bello blog hop! Si vienes de con Monica vienes por buen camino, si llegaste a visitar y quieres brincar con nosotras entonces comienza en el blog de Abby! La anfitriona de nuestro Blog Hop!

Abby and Gaby started this event back in 2010! That's 4 years ago already!
This is one of Abby's favorite days to celebrate because of the meaning of what Day of the Dead is,
and what can be better than a super cute cartoon to illustrate what Day of the Dead is!
Abby y Gaby comenzaron con estos blog hops desde el 2010! Pueden creer que ya son 4 años!
Este es uno de los dias preferidos para celebrar de Abby porque le encanta el mensaje que tiene, y que mejor manera de explicarlo con una linda caricatura!!


It's all about celebrating LIFE!
El Dia de los Muertos se trata de celebrar la VIDA!!

 
My project is a little banner using the adorable Dulcinea Sugar Skulls Sticky Wings digi (scroll down to find yours) from Lacy Sunshine, and the Mini Calaverita clear stamp set from Dilo en Espanol.  The banners were cut by hand and Dulcinea is mounted on a Nesties Mega Classic Scalloped Oval.







I've printed her out 3 times, colored her with Copics, fussy cut and popped her for dimension. 

Here you can see the dimensional shot.
 

All of the skulls were colored first, them run through my Xyron right side down and glittered with microfine transparent Art Glitter to resemble sugar skulls.  It is so fine that it will not damage your Copic tips, so I recolored after glittering for the vibrant effect.  The two sugar skulls flanking the main image are from the Mini Calaverita set from Dilo en Espanol featured below.

The sentiment is also from the Mini Calaverita set.  It translates to "Here is your little (sugar) skull."  Remember, Dia de los Muertos is a joyous happy occasion celebrating family members who are gone but not forgotten.  Sugar skulls often bear the names of loved ones.  If you would like to revisit my previous posts and learn more about the traditions I follow at my house each year, please click Here for 2010, HERE for 2011, and HERE and HERE for 2012.
