Hi, I hope you all had a very blessed Easter! It seemed to have passed me by as my DH was away for three days and as I have a handicapped son of 19 years who has a terrible cold, I couldn't really do much than go for a walk with him. The French do not celebrate Easter as we do, so for them it was just a bank holiday Monday today. It has rained non-stop all weekend too! I'm sorry but there will be no Mediation Monday today - I have had horrible computer problems that caused me frustration and I am just too weary to do it.
So I will post my challenge entries for the 'beyond paper' challenge on the Hero Arts blog this week.
What is 'beyond paper' on this card - the shrink plastic charms. The butterfly has been reduced to a quarter of it's size and the leaf which is hanging from the lace to about a third.
My heat-gun started smoking yesterday so I had to stop! What you do is stamp the image on the rough side of the shrink plastic - color it in, if you want to attach it with string then punch a hole in it - then you shrink it holding it lightly in place with a craft knife or pencil. When it has shrunk, flatten it out with an acrylic stamp holder and voila, your instant charm!
The lilacs are what my husband just brought home for me, picked them along the way! The yellow roses were in my craft room last week - just love them but they only lasted three days! Glad I took a picture!
