This is my Design Team make for the last challenge of 2018 for the "Love To Craft Challenge Blog" #29. Please do pop over and have a look at all the other fab makes by my fellow Design Team members.
This month I decided to play with Shrink Plastic. I've had a pack in my stash for longer than I care to remember, so it was definitely time to put it to use.
For all of the images on this tree, I have used a selection of Lavinia Stamps, stamped in StazOn ink.
The Shrink Plastic that I had was totally smooth and clear. I wanted to give the ink a key, so I lightly sanded the surface with a foot file (it's like a large emery board for dry skin - it's ok, it's not been near my trotters).
I stamped the image, then die cut into ovals or circles. I then punched a hole in the top and placed on a non-stick baking sheet and put in the oven at 130 for about three minutes. When you take them out they have shrunken quite a lot. You can see from the example in the photograph below:
I used fishing line to suspend the discs from the mini tree.
