Shrink Plastic is something I rarely use but I do have a little supply of it in my craft room - like most crafters I suppose, I have a little bit of most things but don't often use all of it.
When I saw this 'stamp and shrink charm swap' on
Ning Network group recently, and some of the examples made
I was inspired to have a go myself.
Here's the stamps I used from Stampotique and Character Constructions.
So it was just a case of stamping onto the clear Shrink Plastic with black
StazOn Ink, colouring (the two Stampotique ones) with Marvy Le Plumme
pens, punching holes into and then heating and shrinking with the heat gun.
This one is my favourite as I like the dangling arms and sewing machine charm (attached with jump rings).
I just added a few beads and findings to these two.
I like the girly one with the heart and the other one is more masculine.
I added a glass gem to his chest as after shrinking there was a large
dimple there and I don't know where it came from!
Here you can see the size of the charms in relation to the stamps.
I might have to make some more now!
Thanks for looking :)
