Having fun with Shrinky Dink!

Hiya Simply Sassy Fans,

Ok, so I'm probably late to the shrinky dink party - but I finally got some and having a TON of FUN with it! Now, I haven't figured out exactly what medium is best used to color on it so my coloring has left a bit to be desired but it's still fun! I love watching it roll and shrink. *giggle*

I wanted to make a charm with Guinevere from the recently released set 7 as soon as I got her! And so I have a fun place to display her I finally altered this notebook so I can write down craft ideas as they come - I don't know about you, but I'm forever saying to myself, ooh, this would be fun to make or I want to try this and then when I actually sit down at my desk to create, I'm like, what do I want to do? Haha - All the ideas are gone by then. So, I figure if I keep this little notebook with me, I can just write down ideas as they come and flip through it when I finally have time to do something.

I wanted to make it pretty and inspiring with all my favorite things so I had to use Guinevere to match the charm along with gorgeous Graphic45 Once Upon A Springtime Collection, OA & Cosmo Cricket stickers as well as Webster's Pages sparklers. I promise I'll use a different stamp next week! haha

Here is the shrinky dink charm next to the full size image so you can get an idea of how tiny it is! Aren't they cute together? I colored them with the same copics (E70, E71, E74, E77, E79) - I was in a monotone mood, I thought it would be fun to color her in a bit of a vintagey vibe.

Have a great weekend!
