I found this over at Nancy's blog..
she is doing this pay it forward..
so I thought.. what a great idea.. :)
"Pay It Forward" is the idea of blessing someone with a random act of kindness without expecting anything in return. It’s passing on a kindness, hoping that your recipients will do the same, and forming a never-ending chain of goodwill. But it isn’t only kindness, it is also a means to connect and share instead of just keeping it to ourselves.

I made the cone using Stampin Ups Sizzix Bigz L Petal Cone die. I then used my big bite to make holes and place the grommets so that I can make a handle.
I colored Hello Tilda using my Copic markers, and cut it out using spellbinders Nestabilites. This was a very simple project, like most of my projects, lol. With 4 kids I have to do things fairly quickly!
Copics I used:
skin: E00, E50
Hair: E23, E25, E27
Egg shell: C1, 00
Dress: Vooo, V01
Flower: R81, R83, Y02
Thank you for taking the time to look at my project. Next stop on the hop is Grandmaj at My Little Craftin Corner http://www.mylittlecraftincorner.blogspot.com/

Step 1:Before you can stamp you will need to prepare your material to except the image by sanding it down.
Step 3: Color your image with color pencils. It will look very, very light. To the point that you can bearly tell that there is any color. Once it shrinks the color will be much darker.
Step 4: If you are going to use the material as a charm or any other reason that you need a whole, you must put a hole in it now, before you heat it.
Step 5: Using a heat gun start to heat the material. It will start to shrink and fold up on itself, so don't get scared it curls up. just keep using the heat gun, until it is completely shrunk.Here are a few shrinks that I made using Magnolia stamps. I finished them by adding Glossy Accents to give it a shine. When I took this picture they were is in the drying stage, which is why they look foggy. Also, in this project I used the matte finish of the shrink material. On another project I used the clear, which I liked better, since it had more of a clear finish. However the Matte finish gave it a more used, old kind of look. So it completely depends on which way you want it to look.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my project. Comments are always great!
