Congrats with PolyShrink !

Hi Everyone!

Today I've played with something fun that brought back memories from childhood crafting projects; Shrink plastic (PolyShrink)!










I was inspired by the picture from PaperSmooches SPARKS  Picture Perfect challenge and stamped flowers onto the shrinkplastic. I used the flowers from the set Denim and Daisies - and then colored them with ordinary coloring pencils. I cut them out and heated them in the oven. They are even cuter in real life (!) and I'm coming back soon to share more fun projects using this plastic fun!
Then I stamped one of the greens from Botanicals 2 onto a diecut stitched rectangle ans stamped the sentiment.
