This month is Stamptoberfest at Two Peas in a Bucket. Lots of challenges going on. My friend Anne ( See her blog here) is hosting a challenge to use shrink plastic - see her challenge here
I had some pre-printed shrink plastic that came with one of my stamping magazines that I had put away, you know that " I'll use it someday" stash you have! Well this was the right opportunity to get it out, colour it in and use in on a card.....
I coloured the plastic bird with Perfect Pearls and water, trimmed it and then did the magic thingie with my heat gun. So pleased with how it turned out. I embossed and distressed the background. Then cut a Spellbinder's tag and lightly distressed. The branch and leaf die is from Memory Box (which the delightful Paula gave me when I visited) I did a bit of doctoring of the branches. The leaves were cut from some watercolour paper I had in green. Finished with a little Happy Birthday sentiment.
I had hoped to partake in some of the other challenges, but this week, time seems to have got away on me. I managed to do my DT work, but not much else. Keeping up with commenting on blogs seems to take so much time.... but I don't want to miss out on seeing all the beautiful work out in blogland!
This is me for the next few days as I have a break away from the computer. I think I might go into a decline :-( I'll miss it!
Have a great weekend all, get lots of crafting done and spend time with your families....
