Jewelry - Handmade with heart

Here is another idea for making handmade gifts for family and friends. All you need is some broken jewellery or a chain you don't like anymore. You can even use ribbon. Crinkled or hand - dyed...it's up to you. You also need a piece of shrink plastic. I used the white plastic and stamped with black StazOn, but you can also use black shrink plastic and stamp with white StazOn.
Craft a project with heart .... i always do (:o)...is the theme of Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week.
My example


I stamped on white shrink plastic with black StazOn.
As you can see, i'm not a perfect stamper (:o)


I used watercolour pencils, to colour the images. Beware....the colours are getting darker when you shrink the plastic. My colouring was a little bit too dark...
Make holes before shrinking, where you want to assemble the pieces


Here you see the pieces after shrinking and the original images


Everything went out a lot darker in colour as i expected. 



  This stampset is from Chocolate Baroque *Punky Romance*


I finished with Glossy Accents, Stickles and little watchparts on top of the images and assembled everything together with an old chain.




Here is another short example for stamping on black shrink plastic whith white StazOn



The possibilitys are endless

Thanks for reading and please let me know if you give it a try. I really like to see your ideas.

Thanks for your appreciated comments, too (:o)

fabelhaft sieht das alles aus!
Ich suche mir grad die PET Verpackung mit der NUmmer 6--die soll so genial zu schrumpfen sein...
aber ich hab bis jetzt noch keine NUmmer 6 gesichtet, wer weiss vielleicht gibt´s die nur in USA?
Du ich hab mal den Tip bekommen mit Pastellkreide "chalks" die Shringplastik zu colorieren.. das wird richtig schön, weil ja die Kreiden sehr zart sind.
Ich mach immer zu wenig Shrinkplastig... muss ich auch öfter mal mir das HERZ dazu nehmen, ich bewundere Dich für Deine schönen Mixed Media Sachen !
