Shrink Plastic

Earlier this week Jo Myhill used Shrink Plastic in her project on the Paperartsy blog. I wanted to make something with shrink plastic as well. I am sure we have it, but where is it? After a long search in our large pile of stamping and scrapbooking supplies, I thought I found it. I coloured it, stamped an image on it, and started to heat it. Whatever I tried, so shrinking... Turned out, I had used acetate, it said plastic on the package ...

Long search again. Now I found it, it is called 'Krimpie Dinkie' in the Netherlands, and it even has a manual how to use it. (Yes, I read the manual). I painted it with Brown Shed fresco paint, stamped the image from HP1108, heated up the oven, and waited. Now it shrinked, which is always very nice to watch. This is the result. The colour turned out a bit dark. Next time, I use a lighter colour.

I painted the ATC with Sky Blue fresco paint, and then dry brushed Baltic Blue fresco paint on top. The upper right corner is made with Grunge Paste, the cogs stamp from Clocks 5, and Treasure Gold. The face and the text are also from the HP1108 sheet.

By the light of the moon

This week it is Liz Borer again on the Paperartsy blog. In her project she made a beautiful background, that I wanted to recreate. This is the result:

I started with a piece of white cardstock, and used embossing folders for trees and foliage. Then I coloured the card with Fresco Acrylics, using several blue colours. The trees and foliage are coloured with Treasure Gold. The moon was stencilled using a circle cut out of paper, and coloured with Snowflake.

The flower in the foreground is from a stamp from the Paperartsy HP1004 sheet, that I inked the with green and brown Zig markers.

Also submitted for the Three Muses challenge, their theme this week is By the Light of the Moon.
