Shrink Plastic Tiles

I did the Tim Holtz tutorial on making tiles with shrink plastic in the UTEE melting pot, then colored them with alcohol inks. Was great fun - alto i couldnt seem to avoid bubbles!

alcohol inks and fragments

i used alcohol ink right on the fragment and then used archival ink to stamp a design and immediately rub it off to leave a resist look. I love the stained glass effect and the color mixture. These make great pendants! FUN!

Xmas card making is fun!

i had fun doing this card from the recent card making mag!! I used my little mouse stamp and glossy accents. On the front in the corner i have a push button to play "twinkle little star". LOVED making these - but they took VERY VERY long! lol.
