More shrinking

Hi Everyone, as promised here is another Shrink Plastic card, this time with a Christmas theme.
It's been great re visiting an old technique this week.. But the Shrink Plastic will be put away until another time as we move onto yet another technique in our lessons next week, oh by the way our new lesson sheets are now available and take us right up to the end of the year.

I love this Poinsettia stamp, it has soooo much potential and I love the fact that even as a one dimensional shape none of it's detail is lost..
I stamped it out three times onto the rough side of some White Shrink Plastic using Black Stazon Ink. I then coloured it in using Derwent Watercolour Pencils.

The images were then cut out and heated with a heat gun to shrink them. Take a look at my previous post for tops tips on how to do this...

As I like to join in with the lesson (if I can and there is space,, not always the case.. standing room only for me last night!!!) I have ended up with quite a few cards with all the same elements, but just by changing the layout of the card brings a different pespective to the whole concept..

So, why not give it a go?..
Have a great weekend everyone, and if you are comig to the Essex Country show see you there..


  1. Lovely cards Andy and I just adore that stamp.

    Toni :o)

  2. These cards, and the Popcorn bear, look even better in 'the flesh' Andy. I love the little ducks best. Shame I can't get to do this lesson but I'm sure, knowing how popular Pinnacle lessons are, that you will have a repeat performance some time in the future. Book me in now please! Keep the inspo coming hunnies we love it all. Renee xxx
