Shink Plastic @ Moving Along With The Times

Mornings all :) 

It's Thursday again and time for a new challenge at

This week the challenge was set the lovely Shell!
Shrink Plastic!

I really do not play with this stuff often enough so I had fun tinkering in my craftroom for this challenge. Though I am not overly impressed with the result lol it was still fun trying something new for a change.

I went trolling for ideas on Pintrest and saw some adorable rings and then I got thinking that my girls would {LOVE} these and if they lost them, well hey, no big deal, and it was fun trying!

1st attempt - Hmmm ... Think that one was a huge fail!

While I am not overly impressed with these, Chloe and Emilie just love them! I originally made  8 but some seem to have gone walking off my desk by two little gremlins lol. All good :) I made them for them and I am glad they love them and want to play with them :)  I colored my plastic with Spectrum Noir pens and used a variety of stamps to embellish them, including making some personalized with each of the girls names.

Still a bit of work to go on perfecting these, but if making them for kids, one sheet will go a long way, so hopefully I will be back to share some more of these one once I have perfected the technique lol
