Sweet Dixie Flourish Frames for Him & Her... using Shrink Plastic..

Today I share a handful of embellishment and Jewellery makes using Kath Halsteads Sweet Dixie Flourish Frames from Personal Impressions all made from Shrink Plastic.

Shrink plastic is *Fantastic* and if you haven't used it you need to as it does exactly what it says... it Shrinks, transforming your stamped images into a smaller versions using heat.
Its as simple as that.

As you can see from the stamp sets true size the images really do shrink in size.

Stamping onto Shrink Plastic using StazOn it is wise to punch a hole before you heat it
if you wish to make a pendant or create dropper earrings.

These earrings have been made using clear shrink plastic so the 
male silhouette can be reversed to face the female silhouette.
The card has been created simply stamping the flourish stamp with versamark ink, 
dusting over with mica powder and embellishing with flat back pearls.

Stamped and cut out using a 2 1/4" punch. the shrunk image is glued into a 
25mm brooch and a domed glass cabochon adhered on top.

Placed onto a card, it makes a lovely gift card for someone.

Creating a Keyring, the male silhouette is stamped using Jet Black StazOn onto the shrink plastic and  a 2 1/2" circle punch used to cut the image out. After it has been heated and shrunk it is fitted into a 30mm keyring pendant.

and finally.. a simple shrink plastic embellishment for a Male Birthday card using the 
Happy Birthday sentiment included in the stamp set.

As you may have observed I have not given you the instructions on how to shrink the plastic there is a variety of brands with differing instructions of ways you can reduce its size. If you follow the instructions you should achieve successful results.

Thank you for your shared time..
I look forward to bringing another creation to you very soon.
