Hello and welcome. A lovely sunny day today. Luckily I completed most of this project last night. Over at PaperArtsy Liz Borer made a lovely doll with a button book. The doll is a bit beyond my available time at the moment but definitely something to remember. She is lovely. So I thought I'd have a go at the shrink plastic buttons. I didn't have any of the stamps Liz used so I looked thru my PaperArtsy stash and.....
I cut some circles of shrink plastic, stamped with the flower from USNT4 and coloured it. My first attempt was a bit wiggly, the one on the right, but then I thought I got it!! I am using clear shrink plastic so I painted the backs with white acrylic.
Such fun. I also made a set using the moth from SIEN10F and coloured the backs with gold acrylic. I made button cards using a Crafty Individuals stamp and coloured with distress ink. Then I decided to make some using the girl from the Bloom stamp set
I used archival ink on my shrink plastic and it bled. Not a problem on simple lines but these were a bit more detailed so they came out a bit darker than I was hoping for. What ink did you use Liz? Anybody have any suggestions.
I thought it would be fun to mount these on cards with the full size stamp on it. The one on the right is a bit pale in her face. Don't know why. Maybe she's getting ready for Halloween.
I decided to make my button cards into tags.
