Try it on Tuesday - Honey I shrank the Plastic!

Todays challenge at Try it on Tuesday is to use Shrink Plastic, so that's just what I did Cut, Shrank and decorated some Black Shrink Plastic.......

First Cut the plastic with a Die 

Then Stamp a background pattern with Gold Stazon and punch a hole.

And Shrink, making sure you flatten with an acrylic block whilst still warm!

Rub the edges of the piece with black Rub n Buff. Shrink the bigger shapes and use these and some gems to decorate. Stick them together with Glossy Accents. Add some ear wires and Voila!

I made a pendant with the leftover bits!


There's even more amazing inspiration over at TioT so hop over there and have a peek! You'll be well impressed!

I'm well into this tutorial lark! and the ladies at the last Lovin' Ink Class wanted a tutorial for making the Tea Cup Candles so I did one for the Lovin' Ink Blog.  Have a look here, you'll be stunned at the simplicity of making your own candles!

Hi Michelle, Oh how I wish I could wear these gorgeous dangly earrings,(tend to look like I'd be happy reading a crystal ball if I do LOL)they are a knockout. The pendant is just fabulous too, what a great gift, Gay xxx

How brilliant are these, Michelle. You are a genius with the old shrink plastic.
I've already admired your tea cup candles over on the LI blog and may well be having a go at those!! You just tempt me too much.
The LO has gone off to Sheena Douglass along with all the other projects for her C&C programme on Monday. I've just about reconciled myself to making things that I can't keep but would have added lots of personal bits to the LO if it was for my own album.
Thanks for your lovely comments and hope you are doing OK. Freya sends her love.
hugs Lisax

Either way, raking is indeed a laborious activity bound to create havoc on your back.
