the rings are very cool.
Don't worry about the question mark being backwards, it's just how the game looks from inside the screen  Grin

For some reason, as soon as I saw the backwards question mark, I started thinking of the game from the perspective of someone trapped inside the TV. Maybe they can only get out if you win the game...or hit the right question mark block! (Sorry, overactive imagination here.)

When I make a Shrinky Dink, I'm usually going off a pattern, so I print it normally and backwards, and put the two side by side. Usually it's so I can outline with a fine-tipped permanent marker on the shiny side, and then do the backwards image on the reverse side. It gives it a cool 3D look, and I'm less likely to make it backwards that way. Smiley

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

Great Idea, I never would have thought to use Shrink Art for rings. 

I love the owl one.

for the craftster's not finding shrinky dink sheets in stores - don't throw out your grocery store containers! all sorts of store containers for muffins and salad bar are plastic #6s and perfect for shrinky dinks.
