Shrinky fluterbys



Good evening to you all, I hope you've all had a good weekend.

I promised to share some more of the butterfly samples I made for Stamp Addicts program which is on Create and Craft TV tomorrow at 11am, it's a two hour show so don't forget put it onto record........note to self !!


Both of these two cards have the large butterfly from the set stamped onto shrink plastic and coloured with Pan Pastels before shrinking. I think this is one of the most enjoyable butterflies I've ever used on shrinky, because it's such a large stamp with fabulous detail none of that is lost when it's reduced in size. And of course as with any colouring medium the colour of the Pans intensifies when shrunk.

The card at the top has a simple border created with an Imagination Craft stencil and sparkle medium and the butterfly coloured to match. I bought a couple more stencils and colours at the NEC on Friday and I'm quite looking forward to having a play with them.

The frames on the bottom card were created with one of the little corner silhouette stamps shown on a previous program, but all are still available from Stamp Addicts here.

Enjoy the rest of your evening, soon be time for the result shows of both Strictly and the X Factor.......... despite all good intentions not watch this year I was hooked from the start, mind you there are so few decent programmes lately the choice is limited.
