Earrings


Over at PaperArtsy Blog the challenge theme has been miniature and Emma Godfrey made a lovely card using shrink plastic, and Leandra had included some shrink art pieces in  her introduction for miniature art.

After spending an age looking for my stash of Shrink plastic I brought a new supply but clear- EEEK!! Definitely not as forgiving as the white backed stuff I had originally; and I suppose reading the instructions first would have helped!!
For a first attempt on clear and without priming the sheet first they are better in real life than the photo although I did nearly decapitate one bird man!! Definitely more practice needed!!
 
So hard to photograph !!

I love shrink plastic and stamps! Your bird man is fantastic! I love the parts you may consider not perfect...they add a vintage look to them to me! Thanks for sharing with us at Rhedd's Creative Spirit this month! ~Nanette, DT~

Well, I think they are a great idea. Shrink plastic is really useful for earrings and the bird men were a perfect choice. xx
