Shrinking Dragonflies

Hello Everyone,

Today I am playing with City Crafter Challenge! Their challenge this week proves to be on an interesting subject. Plastic! Okay here is my card for today, Enjoy.

The dragonflies were stamped on shrinky dink plastic, colored,
then shrunk with heat.  

This is the original dragonfly stamp 
alongside the shrunken one.

A detail of one of the dragonflies. Very 
Intricate and so pretty.

City Crafter Challenge: Week 297- Fantastic Plastic

Well it is official, my computer finally died. I hated it and so glad it is done. All I want to do is smash it into little pieces. You can probably hear my frustration because I have a class party of 30 to entertain and the computer would have been really helpful. So now I am off to make some valentines and create some games by hand.. oh the humanity!! Ahhh...Feeling better.

Thank you for stopping by and we will see you soon (hopefully).

All the best,
