The shrinky was colored using rubber stamp pigment inkpads. The pic doesn't look very good, but IRL it's very bright and funky. The 2 are glued together using a dab of Super Glue. (This is my first pic upload so I hope it works!)
Found this site by accident and am so happy to find a craft group that caters to a wide range of crafts, rather than a specialized group for one particular craft only (as in most Yahoo Groups). I dabble in all sorts of crafts, but my main addictions at the moment are jewellery making with fabric/felt/fibres/beads and rubber stamping/papercrafts (mainly cardmaking). Looking forward to spending many happy hours browsing through all the forums!
Just found this site (Craftster) by accident and have spent hours pouring over all the wonderful forums. Thanks for the Felt.co.nz link too - just what I'm looking for to ?? sell some of my fabric jewellery. Look forward to joining swaps and discussions on the NZ forum, and also to enjoying what seem to be zillions of great tutorials and info on lots of the crafts I dabble in (polymer clay, rubber stamping, card making, sewing, beading, collage and anything else that grabs me and keeps me away from housework!)
My first day with Crafsters! How did I never hear about this place before??? I can see hour after hour disappearing while I browse the amazing forums. I love making fabric/fiber/felt/button/bead etc. jewellery, so this upload is a test to see if I'm doing the pic upload thingy correctly. Hope so .... This brooch is quite large, around 5 inches. Thanks for having me on board!
