Copic Flower Overload!

 I need to start coloring something other than flowers!  What else is there to color that has simple lines and open spaces??  It's time for me to start looking.  Pictures of kids on skateboards and teddy bears don't count!  It's time to expand my horizons!  I'm going to look at Whippersnapper Stamps after this!  Maybe Outline Stamps and Magenta too!  I'm excited!

The tinier 3D flowers on the front of the card are the same stamps done with Shrinky Dink.  (What a Name!...who thought of it?  No-one's going to forget what it's called - that's for sure!) I haven't used it for quite a while and I just had to do something else ya' know?  The shrink plastic is problematical because you can't really stamp with Staz-On since the copic marker will react badly with it.  But if you stamp in a dye based won't dry until it's melted.  Coloring on the back of it doesn't cut it either.  I settled for sanding, stamping in dye, drying just enough not to shrink, cutting without sticking my hand in it, shrinking it, and then adding the copic marker coloring when it's fully shrunk. Whew!

I didn't realize I had stamped the inside of the card as though I would be putting it in a card that was longer height wise than width wise.  Nice change though!  I think I'll leave it!
