Its A Shrinky Dink Kind Of Day

I just can't stop experimenting with my Chameleon Pens and the good news is so far they have worked on every surface I have tried!  Today's experiment is Shrink Plastic.....

Shrink Keyring

Materials Used:
Chameleon Art Pens, Chrimson Red, Cool Grey, Grass Green, Bark, Deep Black and Fawn, Penny Black Born Wild 4127K stamp, Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink, White Shrink Plastic.

1) Stamp image onto shrink plastic and leave to dry overnight, punch hole for key chain.

2) Colour with Chameleon pens, remember to keep the colours light as when you shrink your designate the colours intensify.

3) Shrink in oven or with heat gun (per manufacturers instructions) add to key chain to finish.

Well that is a smiley way to start Wednesday, back soon with more fun projects.
