These are super cute.  I especially like th tinkerbell one.  What did you use to paint on the stinky dink?  I use colorpencil and my shrinky dink are not as bright as yours.

I just used Crayola colored pencils. The colors intesified as they shrunk. On the Wonder Woman and Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman cards I used some white cardstock to back the dinks to give the colors more pop.

As far as printing on the SD paper, you can only use a deskjet printer, it won't work on inkjets. You need to buy specially marked printable SD paper (I think you can get it at Michael's) and print on the rough side.

When you save your images for printing, you want to invert them in Photoshop or a similar program. You print and color on the rough side (back) so inverting you image makes your letters come out right on the smooth side (front).

I hope I answered everyone's questions. Thanks for the compliments.  Cheesy

That's so pretty Megaknits!  I'm so impressed.   Shocked

It's funny, I just found this paper at Micheal's on Saturday and have made some cute charms (can't post them, they're for a swap and I don't want to ruin the surprise). 

And I know that Wonder Woman one is for me.  How'd you know she was my favorite?    Cheesy
