Stampotique and Flowers

That's the theme over at Stampotique Designers' Challenge blog for this fortnight, and here is my entry,
an ATC with a shrunk Gibi.    



My base card was covered with an old book page, then painted over with a wash of red acrylic paint, then more paint around the edges and some Distress Stickls.   I added scraps of wc paper and some staples with the tiny attacher, I then stamped Gibi onto shrink plastic, coloured her with wc pencils, trimmed the image with sharp scissors and blasted her with my heat gun.    I then used the 2 smaller sized Alterations flowers, painted them and scrunched them up, added a brad, and some more Distress Stickls, as well as a butterfly punch.   The tiny letters are Kaiser letter stickers.   I hope you are having a fun (and creative) weekend : )   Thanks for visiting me...

Gibi looks in all her best here. Did you colour her with water colours?? in plastic? and the colours didn't fade?

Vicky said...

Hi Cuchy, I just used the wc pencils as pencils (no water added) and used the heat gun as normal to shrink the image, with no loss of colour at all :)
