Brutus Monroe Hop - Honey, I SHRUNK the cards!

Good morning crafty friends! This week's blog hop features the Brutus Monroe shrink film! Every stop on the hop has some fun ideas for shrink film use. I also used it a while back to make Halloween hair bows for my girls. You can check that post out by clicking here.

Both projects today use the "Sprinkled with Love" stamp set. It's so cute! Ice cream is my favorite food. For this card, I stamped the images onto the shrink film using Raven detail ink. Since you can't heat set the ink, and it is a slick surface, I left it overnight to dry, just to be sure it would dry completely. I colored the images the next day with Copic markers. Keep in mind that the colors deepen as they shrink down, so it might look darker than the actual marker you color with. You can also color on the pieces after they have shrunk down! I fussy cut the images and then used my heat tool to shrink them all down. After this, I stamped the images onto aqua pigment paper with Raven detail ink, and I colored them all with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. I fussy cut the images and created the shaker window in a piece of Alabaster cardstock. I filled the shaker with the little shrink film treats, as well as some of the plastic sprinkles that Brutus Monroe sells!

 I heat embossed the sentiment onto Raven cardstock with Alabaster EP, and then glued a few of the sprinkles around the card front. The shaker panel is matted on Phonebook cardstock.

The second project is a pair of ice cream earrings!

 I work with kids in a school, so I like having cute, whimsical things to wear. The earrings were a hit! I had a pair of old earrings that were flat and diamond shaped that were part of a multi-pack I had bought a while back, and I didn't use that pair at all. I glued the earrings to the back of the colored and shrunken ice cream cones, and voila! Ice cream earrings!
