Blog Hop with Shrink Plastic!


It's time for the Denami Design Blog Hop again! 
This month's theme is "Girlie Girl!"
You should have arrived here from Colleen's blog, but if you get lost just go back to the beginning.

I went all out for this one and created some jewelry for one of my great-nieces.
Yep...jewelry with Denami stamps!



See those tiny teddy bears and beads on the bottom of my card? 
It's actually a bracelet and I used Shrink Film to make it
!  
The Teddy Bear image was perfect for making charms. But I wanted to add a bit more to my card so I used the small Heart Pair, and two sentiments from the Heartfelt Greetings set. All CS, ribbon, and buttons are also Denami products...they have everything!


You can see here I stamped the teddy bear on 2 different kinds of shrink plastic, Clear and Matte. I also stamped them with both brown and black Memento ink to see which looked better once it had shrunk, and colored them with Copic markers.


Look how cute that tiny charm is! I love these pink teddys!


I put the bracelet on to show you that I created 5 tiny teddy bear charms, but only 4 are visible here. The bracelet is sized for a little girl, so it was stretched tightly on my own adult wrist! *chuckle*

Your next stop on the Hop is DEBBIE'S BLOG!
Be sure to comment on each participant's post for a chance at one of TWO $20 Gift Certificates from Denami!

I am officially addicted to stamping with shrink plastic now. More will be coming for sure.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a good one!
*mwah*
