are you enjoying summer? It's pretty hot over here right now (FINALLY!) and I feel tired but good with all the sun and heat.
It's my turn at the Sweet Stamp Shop Blog again and I thought I go a bit out of the Box. So I created some earring with shrink plastic. I know - this is not a new technique at all, but this was the first time ever that I used shrink plastic and I instantly fell in love. You can find a tutorial on the Sweet Stamp Blog. There are the earrings that I created:
If you think "uhm, the lines are not criss" - you're right! I talked about that on the Sweet Stamp Shop as well ;) But I still love those, although I don't wear jewelry unless it's made from natural stuff like wood, stone, bone... ;) Well, those little cuties are going to fly to Australia, because my sweet friend Linda loves them. :)
Shrink plastic shrinks a LOT if you heat it. Look at the difference:
The colors get darker, more bold and the plastic gets way thicker and more sturdy. Very very cool!
I know I'm going to make some meeples out of shrink plastic and with cute stamps. I always wanted to create my own board game. I'll just dab a bit of hot glue onto my Ranger non-stick craft sheet and hold the meeple in it to have it standing. Ha!
Should I share a tutorial on that, too?
I will also make a cute Keyring for my work-key. (I think it's more than 20 keys... ugh!) but that's pretty close to what I did with the fox. Oh, by the way - this is Foxy from the sweet stamp shop - one of my favorite images ever - so so cute!
Okay, that's it for now. Hop over to the Sweet Stamp Shop Blog to see the entire tutorial. :)
Have a great sunny week-end!
