This week I thought I’d pull out a medium that I haven’t used in awhile, some fun Shrink Plastic! I remember as a kid having printed “Shrinky Dinks” to color and create with. I remember kneeling at the oven door, peering through the glass and watching them curl and contort and become cool little trinkets. Is this something you did as a child?
Well we’re going to play with them again today and go through a few tips and tricks of inking them, coloring them and uses for them.
So let’s go to my crafty desk and create something fun. Today I’m showcasing the bold and beautiful “Tiger Lily XL” clear stamp set on all my projects.
Here’s another quick look at the 2 simple cards I made using my first two plastic lilies…
And here’s my final project, I quick bookmark using the Tiger Lily I colored with you on screen…
I hope you too get a chance to play with some fun stamps and cool plastic. Give some of that plastic packaging that you have hanging around a try.
Thanks for joining me today!
