It was Sheila's turn to choose the theme and this week it is shrink plastic.
Well as you can see my project is not a card, I did think about doing some shrink plastic flowers to add to a card but then thought I would do something different. So here it is, not perfect but my daughter loves it. I started off with some dies from my collection and chose clear shrink plastic for the large star and frosted for the smaller stars and squares. After cutting my shapes I stamped the word Mcfly (my daughter Holly's favourite group) and then coloured the edges with momento ink. I then pierced a hole in them before shrinking. I used jump rings to attach to my chain, added a clasp to finish.
This is a Beige pearlised base landscape card, and for the main matt l used co ordinations card in a naturalcolour, embossed with a bark effect emboss. folder, sanded it back and layered it landscape so as to give sea-waves look I then stamped the map onto toning card, added text, and a strip of waste card that l had run through a dotty folder, for ribbon. All the edges were inked with Walnut distressed ink.The shrink plastic embellishments were from the same stamp collection from Creative Expressions. This was a nice change and l enjoyed using my shrink plastic.
