Try it on Tuesday - Honey I shrunk the plastic!

No idea which Dt member chose this theme but shrink plastic is such fun to play with - have you ever tried it? well my favourite use is making charms for projects which is what i have done here. I have taken a magnolia circle stamp with North Pole on it coloured the plastic and then shrunk it. This utterly gorgeous Father Christmas is by Tim Holtz and I have used some papermania snowflakes to do a red on red background The father Christmas has been stamped with cherry cobbler SU ink onto some glossy paper - I love this glossy look.
Here is a blurry close up of the charm hanging from the bow - and a wee snowflake just finishes it off.
This is perfect for St Lukes charity card challenge - theme Christmas and also Creative card crews Monochromatic
So do you fancy shrinking the plastic? do stop by Try it on Tuesday and see what other projects the DT have come up with x
