Shrink Plastic

Shrink Plastic on ATC
Blogging today about shrink plastic,loveeeeeee it !
It can be a bit tricky,especially large pieces,i wont go into explaining how to do it as the instructions are on the packet,i use a hotgun rather than heating up the oven for this.
On this ATC i decided to show how much smaller it shrinks to the original rubber stamp,as you see the large image is background the shrink'd piece forground.using the same stamp.
You dont have to use rubber stamps with this,so many possibilities with your own artwork.
You can colour/paint the image before shrinking,but i chose black and white for my theme.
Its an amazing technique to try.......enjoy !

Great ATC Pattie & using the same stamp twice is a brilliant look. I am inspired by this technique. Something that I will definately be trying myself soon. I love shrink plastic!
