Oh The Fun Of Shrink Plastic

Howdy Inky Friends.

Yesterday I sat down to play with Terry’s Tips on Shrink Plastic,
I was so surprised when my bird cage came out of the toaster oven
that I had to make a card to show you.
You can find more detailed information on
I used Tim Holtz Alterations Caged Bird die, some Alcohol Inks
(Colors Caramel, Denim and Pearl) then over stamped with Versa Magic Chalk inks in Black and White.
Stamps used are from Hero Arts and Amuse Studio’s.

The verse “Keep A Green Bough”, is from Oxford Impression, but was far to large to work with the card, so I printed it out using the computer.
Here’s Wishing you A Play Full Sunday, try that Shrink Plastic.

Greetings Ladies.

The Farmers have returned home.
We had a wonderful trip or vacation and it’s good to be home again.
Came home to a mess on my desk, so I had to complete this card. Going back to
 “Using Up Scraps”, here’s another scrappy card.
Only used one stamp and that’s from Great Impressions.
My tag is from a new Blog Site called Lilac and Lavender
If you have time stop by and take a look,
I’m sure you will find something that interests you.
Hope this finds everyone well,
and I will stop in soon to see what you have been doing while I was gone.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend, take care.
