Project - Shrink plastic baubles

This card is for the Hero Arts October challenge (holiday card theme). I was playing around with shrink plastic the other day and got the idea of making baubles out of shrink plastic. To make these, I first cut the baubles out of the plastic and then stamped the images with Stazon ink. The three baubles were coloured in different ways. The snow on the round one and on the village one was coloured with a white pencil before shrinking. The sky on the round one was coated with two shades Stickles, after shrinking. The houses were coloured with alcohol ink before shrinking and after shrinking I added snow to the roofs with a gel pen. The tree bauble was coated with Glossy Accents and sprinkled with glitter after shrinking.
The snowman was dry embossed on watercolour paper and then the whole paper was covered in Rock Candy Distress crackle paint. It gave a snowy glittery effect that was hard to capture on the photo. The background was sponged with Distress Ink Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass. The sentiments were stamped with alphabet stamps on the plastic before shrinking and translates ‘Merry Christmas’ and ‘Christmas peace’. TFL!!
