It's not just for Kids..!! Shrink plastic Key ring..

It's Friday again.. YAY..!! One small step away from the weekend.
It's also time for a brand new Challenge Theme over 
.. and a chance to win £20 in the That's Crafty Store.

This fortnights theme is *Anything BUT cards*

Please pop on over HERE and check out the DT's inspirational makes.

Here's my little *Anything BUT cards* creation, in words and pictures.

Using the Marina Stamp set I stamped onto clear shrink plastic with 
Black StaZon and coloured in on the reverse side using alcohol markers.

I cut around the images leaving a border and punched holes where I wanted the jump rings to be  attached. Now its time to bake them, I always use an oven for shrink plastic as it works much better for me than a heat tool but that's just my personal choice.
Follow the manufacturers instructions as they can vary from brand to brand.

Jump rings fasten the shrink plastic pieces together and a gathering
of Maya fibres help add interest along with twisted wire pearls.
All finally attached to a Key ring with lobster clasp.

 My baked shrink plastic Key ring is complete.

A fun little make perfect to entertain the Children
over the Summer Holidays and a bit of
 low calorie baking for the Adults.

Thank you for taking time to pop on over
 I look forward to seeing your Crafty Creations over at the
That's Crafty Challenge Blog.

Creative Hugs
Tracey xx

Absolutely love this idea Tracey, Marina makes a fabulous keyring and I'm with you on the oven baking as I find the heat tool method too unpredictable!
Love, Fliss xxx

Oh how I love this Tracey, it's truly stunning!! Thank you for the magic you create with my designs. I've given up trying to make anything decent with shrink plastic so maybe I'll try the oven bake method then :)

Dorthe said...

It is wonderful Tracey, so lovely detailed painted, and the sweetest mermaid, ever, with her fish and star ,tail :-) . You are so clever with the plastic, and your ideas are beautiful. So gorgeous presented on the fishy tag. Hugs from Dorthe, xx

aussie aNNie said...

ahh shrink plastic, have not used it for yonks now I know I have some but where?? It's fun to play with and love this.xx [aNNie]

Tracey@Hotchpotchcreations said...

I think it's a Marmite medium Annie and not everyone's cup of tea. I had some larger sheets which I had mixed up with thick acetate, not a good thing to do haa haa!! Think I will pass it off as paint palettes as I have not the time to discover what is what. Glad you like xx

Mia said...
