I have been experimenting with Shrinky Dinks quite a bit lately and wanted to post a few of my favorite pieces.  I love the instant gratification of shrink plastic!



Poppy pendant was traced onto Ruff N'Ready with permanent pen and colored with colored pencils and chalks.  The glaze was made my melting clear embossing powder over it and the crystal was placed in the center before the powder was melted.



I made variations of this keychain for my friends.  I printed the words on regular paper and glued them onto the shrunk piece before I melted embossing powder over it and it created kind of a transparent effect.
Thanks for looking.

The poppy is beautiful! I am definitely going to get some embossing powder -- that is such a terrific effect!

 Cheesy I love the saying in the friendship pendant, I might just have to *steal* that. You did an excellent job on these, I really love how you put a gem in the one, it really makes it stand out.

those are very cute and great idea with the embossing powder!
Is it pretty sturdy?  I use resin sometimes does it hold up as well as that?
