High Hopes..."Dragon Bling"


It's tutorial week over at the High Hopes Blog

Our Diva Tanya has made a fabulous tutorial showing
us how to create an Easter basket....
It is absolutely adorable!!!!

I have been playing around lately with a lot of different
products and my most recent venture is with
"Shrink Film"

I created this bracelet... "Dragon Bling" with some of
Dustin Pike's awesome dragons and accessory stamps.

It was really tough to get a good pic because of the
glare of the shrink film so if you want a better look on the pic to enlarge it.

My shrink film was clear and smooth on both sides so
I had to sand one side (with fine sandpaper) .
After I sanded it I stamped the images with Stazon jet
black ink. I colored all the images with pencilcrayons.
I cut out each image and punched a 1/8" hole at the
top of each one also for the ring. I used my embossing
heat gun to shrink the images. After they were cool
I glazed the rough sanded side with glossy accents.

I hope you like was a lot of fun to make!!

Be sure to stop by the High Hopes Blog
and check out Tanya's Easter basket tutorial !!

Have a Fabulous day
