#2 CCC-22, PDCC #56 and Simon Says Stamp and Show!!

This is the first time I have made a second card for the Compendium of Curiosities challenges over at Studio L3 and I hope it is ok. I made different color backgrounds and this had already had the Scrolls Work tree (Batik) done along with the alcohol splatter. I needed some time to figure out the rest! The stamps I used are all from Scrolls Work and two of them I used shrink plastic on. This is the first time I ever played with that product and let me tell you, when those babies shriveled up to almost nothing and curled all in on its self, I thought it was doomed. Well here is the result of the mirrored Cardinals and Light Set. I used alcohol markers to color prior to the heat treatment. The lights and birds shrunk up to just the right size for the Christmas tree and still keep all of that beautiful Scrolls Work detail! This is also headed over to Simon Says Stamp and Show - Anything That Makes You Happy challenge. Well what makes me happy is anything Scrolls Work and Alcohol! What a combination!  The Play Date Cafe Challenge #56 are using red, olive and turquoise and so we are playing there!

Check out the close up and detail in the shrink plastic!
Have a fabulous weekend and thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!

Isn't shrink plastic fun!?! Now that you've got your heart back in your chest, try making some earrings out of your favorite stamps with the shrink plastic. Love the birds and the card. You're art is always fantastic.

Sarah Anderson said...

Be warned Terry, shrink plastic is addictive lol! Your pieces look amazing on the tree, and as you say are the perfect size. Thanks for playing in the play date cafe, you are truly appreciated :)

Sherry said...

Your tree looks wonderful against the stunning background and your shrink plastic pieces look fab - it really IS scary when they curl up onto themselves when heating - but so satisfying when they uncurl and are perfect little minatures!

Maria Ontiveros said...

These are fabulous!!! Did you batik before or after the alcohol splatter?

Really gorgeous! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge blog.

CuddlyBunny said...

OK, first of all this is just freakin' amazingly gorgeous! I love it, and agree with the shrink-plastic heart palpitations. Every time I play with that stuff it works out fine, but SEEMS at first as if it's going to be a wreck.

Also, how the hell did you 'do' that tree? It's fantastic!

Linda Ledbetter said...

Terry, I'm delighted to get to see a second entry from you this week, and this one is as wonderful as the first! The batiked tree looks spectacular, and you've created another beautiful splattered background! And these shrink plastic pieces are awesome, and reminded me just how long it's been since I've played with that fun product!

Thanks for the double shot of fabulousness this week!

Gerrie Johnnic said...
