Shrinky Dink Flower

Did you ever play with Shrinky Dinks as a child? Well, I decided to try stamping this great flower from the Flower Fest stamp set in the summer mini. I sanded the plastic first, then stamped the image in black stays-on ink. I colored it in with permanent markers, punched it out, and shrunk it down with my heat tool. It gets so small and sturdy. I think it is a fun touch for this card. I am planning to try more of these and maybe even make some earrings or pins. I may try some crystal effects on them to give them a glossy shine. Since this stamp set has many images that can be colored in and punched out, I will have a lot of fun doing this.
