Belly Dancer Pendant - Altered Rummikub





This pendant is being featured at Party Time Tuesday!

I altered a game piece to create this pendant. The belly dancer image is from Lunagirl Moonbeams. She is from the Faux Postage collection. She was a little too risque so I used a butterfly from the Shabby Green Sheet to make her G-rated, lol!

I attached the image to my game piece with mod podge. I then went around the edges with gesso. Then using my finger, I smeared on some yellow acrylic paint. I further distressed the design with watercolor crayons. Once everything was dry, I applied two coats of varnish. The bail is a heart charm.
