I started by stamping onto the rough side of the shrink plastic. I used Archival ink but staz on would also work fine. At this point you could add colour - its best to use pencils and only colour lightly as the colour intensifies on shrinking. Because my stamp was relatively small Ididn't colour at all.
Next I did some fussy cutting and then put the stamped images onto a baking tray and put into a preheated oven at 190 degrees C....it took a mximum of 30 seconds. Larger stamps would take longer.
This is how they look when shrunk. Really tiny!!!
I decided to use my shrunked leaves to form part of a card. I used a stencil from clarity and one from that special touch to create the idea of a window and wall. I stamped a chocolate baroque stamp in the window and added the ivy.
I hope you agree that shrink plastic is worth another look!
