Not a Card & a Bit of Shrink Plastic...



It's Friday so there are new releases at StampFairy & this week it is Linda Fairy & there is also a fabulous freebie circle sentiment.  I love fairies & as one of my New Year's resolutions was to make some jewellery I thought I'd make a key-chain.  I printed the image on to printable shrink plastic. coloured it with pencils, cut it out & punched a hole for the jump ring to attach it to the chain; then heated it with a heat gun - et voila! so to speak lol.  I threaded various beads on to eye pins & attached to the chain finishing off with a Love charm.  There are some gorgeous cards from the DT for lots more inspiration :)



The challenges:
City Crafter - All You Need Is Love
The Shabby Tea Room - No Patterned Paper & Handmade Embellishment
Sir Stampalot - All Creatures Great & Small
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Anything Goes


Thank goodness it's Friday, hope you've all had a great week & have an even better weekend!

Okay, so now I am going to HAVE to try the shrink plastic thing! It is great. Would be something to put on kid's chains so they wouldn't loose them so fast.
