Shrink Plastic at MAWTT

Good morning. This is my second post for today - please scroll down for my DT post for Charisma this week - or click here.

This time I'm here to share my DT project for 

and our gorgeous Shell picked the theme


Here's what I did: 
There are so many different techniques on this card to share with you :o)
I started with making the flutterbys - using my all time favourite flutterby stamp from Creative Expressions

I stamped the image 3 times with Archival Black Ink onto the shrink plastic - when the ink was dry I turned the shrink plastic over and dabbed 3 colours of alcohol inks over the images - cut them out and blasted them with my heat gun until they shrunk - moulding them slightly whilst they were still soft and warm.
 Then I created my background Design Paper - using a gloss card and dabbing alcohol inks all over. I over stamped this with Penny Black Script stamp and then added some scrummilicious Stampendous Frantage embossing powders, glitters and enamels and heat embossed from underneath - I loooovvvveeee this technique - it is soooooo sparkilicious :o)
 A little inking around the edge of the card base and some simple mat and layering onto co-ordinating cardstock - with one edge punched using Martha Stewart Doily border punch.
A few adhesive pearls added to the flutterbys and some Viva Decor Pen pearls added to finish it off.
Sentiment - LOTV
  I really did have fun making this card - I hope you like it :o)
