Saturday's workout "Shrink Plastic"


Finally got time to participate in some of the challenges again because it is half term!
Shrink Foil or plastic is the theme at SaWo. I made an ATC, - the background is collaged then overpainted with acrylics. The tag is embossed metal with an image from Paper Whimsey and finally the letters are stamped onto shrinkplastic, cut out and then shrunk with a heat gun. A little trick I learned was to do the shrinking inside a little box, that way the plastic cannot fly all over the place.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
