A Bit of Shrink Plastic...



I haven't had much time for crafting lately & things were starting to get on top of me a bit but I wanted to make something for this week's Sentimental Sundays challenge & I wanted it to be different but it also had to be quick - well this was the plan!  I spent hours yesterday fiddling about with shrink plastic, first it was the wrong dimensions (though in the end I had to go with this one), then it just didn't look right & finally when I thought I was nearly there the Modge podge was too thick & made all the ink run :o(  So I went back to the first attempt though it wasn't quite right - (the image was printed onto printable shrink plastic),  I coloured it with pencils, stamped on the back & punched a hole for the jump ring (this is done before shrinking). Then I covered it with Modge Podge & added a sprinkling of Glamour Dust.  Our challenge is "Add a Doodle to it" & we are sponsored by the wonderful Scribbles Designs & I used Flower Doodle 6.  I hope you can find time to join us.  Happy Mother's Day to all those who are celebrating today :o)  I'm spending the morning with youngest son & then at the MIL for dinner tonight.

The challenges:
Craft My Life - Anything But a Card
CMC - Sparkle It

This is so cute, Tracey! I love/hate shrink plastic. It can be so temperamental! :) Great picture of the sparkle!

A very pretty pendant as a result of staying with it. Love the colours and the wording on the back. When you want a 5 min job to take 5 mins they just never do!! Thank you for joining in at Craft My Life Challenge. Hugs Mrs A. (DT).
