Remember our February Product Challenge?We have been so busy with Valentines Day ideas that you may have forgotten we have a Product Challenge this month using our Venice stamp. We sent out 5 Venice stamps to fellow gypsies...2 Venice stamps went to US winners and 3 were sent outside the US to Brazil, Singapore and Norway. We're keeping our fingers crossed that the stamps find their way to their destinations quickly! If you missed it, you can read about the challenge back in the post from Feb 1st...remember, we're giving away a Venice prize package to one lucky winner that will be drawn at random.
We also have members of the gypsy design team participating in the challenge this month. We started off the month with Rachel's fabulous heart shaped Venice stamp pillow and today we have another fabulous project from Vicki...your gonna love it.
Shrinky Dink Charms
Vicki BoutinI love the new trend of vintage “finding” made in to jewelry so that is where the idea started for my part in the Venice Stamp Challenge. When I started looking through my years of accumulated junk, I mean treasurers, I came across a package of shrink plastic. That got the wheels turning.
Venice Stamp set on shrink plastic (you need to use Staz On for this) and then I cut the images out in basic shapes. Keep it simple and leave a fair bit of negative space. I would recommend punching the holes you will need to hang the bits BEFORE you bake them. I did this with the second batch.
gold and silver. You may want to cover the foiled pieces with a clear sealant because the tape remains a little tacky.
