Shrink plastic. Amazing stuff.
I decided to make a shrink plastic charm necklace, using clear and translucent shrink plastic.
I drew a heart template shape, then laid it onto the shrink plastic and drew around it to create the hearts. I punched holes in all the hearts, ready for the jump rings.
I coloured the clear hearts with Stazon ink, and heated them. While they were still hot, I stamped into them using a 'crackle' stamp inked up with gold Brilliance ink.
I coloured the backs of the translucent hearts with Stazon, then stamped the fronts with a selection of finely patterned stamps. After heating, I stamped the backs with the gold Brilliance ink and the crackle stamp
I used jump rings to attach all the hearts to the chain,
and added some beads and a little metal heart to finish it off.
The colour in the image above is close to true, but the detail shows better in the image below.
I hope my swap partner likes it!
