TGF Farmerz Challenge

I had so much fun participating in the Shrinky Dink challenge issued by the TGF Farmerz Club by Funkie Munkie Scraps. I won by default because no one else entered and can't wait to see what the challenge will be for the next month!!

So, how did I make this cute little card? It's actually relatively simple! I had to play around with the Shrinky Dinks to find the right combination for my coloring and my oven. I used Jet Black Staz On ink and my Prismacolor Watercolor pencils. I do not have regular colored pencils but those may work as well. I used the Home Sweet Home stamp set by The Greeting Farm purchased at the Funkie Munkie. I used Coredination paper for the green cardstock and standard Bazzill cardstock for the orange and lighter green which I purchased at Scrapnesia. I used a standard 8 1/2 x 11 piece of heavy weight white cardstock for the card base (cut in half). I zig-zag stiched around the outerpart of the card using my sewing machine. I wish they made a good quality portable sewing machine that i could take with me to crops!! I bought one of the little ones that you can find in the regular craft stores but hated it as I could not sew straight with the little feet that move the paper along.

Now, as far as shrinking the plastic, you'll have to check out the directions I added to my online group here. :)

Happy Crafting!
