Craft Barn Wishing Well - Shrink Plastic


Hi everyone! Another wishing well day at the Craft Barn blog today and this time we're using shrink plastic which is a wish granted for Christine C who wins a prize for having her question picked and wanted to know about inks etc., that can be used on shrink plastic.  On the Craft Barn Blog there's a wonderful tutorial by Kay with lots of her gorgeous samples using different colouring mediums on the shrink together with a beautiful sample and 'how to' from Isa for another completely different look :D.


I used alcohol ink on my shrink plastic after die cutting it with Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations dies and used it to decorate a large wooden peg. All the details of the materials and a little 'how to' are on the Craft Barn Blog and if you leave a question on the wishing well post and it's picked you can win a great prize. Enjoy your day.

I love shrink plastic but don't think I use it to the full extent so I shall head on over to the Craft Barn Blog and do some studying.
