Back to Basics & Beyond - Shrink Plastic Card


We have a new challenge starting today at Back to Basics & Beyond - Shrink Plastic.  I was not familiar with this and had fun creating my DT card with a stamped horse using Shrinky Dink.  The instructions on the package said to use alcohol ink or markers to color the image, but I used water-based paint and the horses color came out o.k.

Here's a video about using shrink plastic:

Bite Me!


The Rabbit Hole has a new stamp release and this shark and sentiments are in the release.  When I saw the current challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers titled WTF?,  I knew this cool shark would have something to say.

I used my Zig markers to color the shark and his coffee cup and a die cut from My Favorite things to cut the background.

Hope my card gave you a laugh!  Thanks for stopping by :)
