okay all..this is the last shrinky dink post for the weekend , and more than likely the beginning of the week as well :-)

i have  received several PM's about hand-handstamping on dink  and how exactly it works.

 I stamp before I shrink... then cut the shape , punch the whole , and then shrink . I was also asked if the stamp can be seen from both sides , and the answer is absolutely , You can choose to hang your dinky charm with either side  facing front ; either the stamped surface or the reverse ( which makes it look as if its under  a slightly cloudy glass.) Again , once you shrink be sure to seal with a  spray enamel ...or the stamp will wear off. You can also seal with clear nail polish , although it can look streaky from the brush strokes. Spray enamel makes for an even look :-)

Thanks for looking :-)

love all of your stuff so far. just wondering what kind of ink you stamp with. i haven't used shrinky dinks in years but i used to use black archival permanent ink although i found it ran a little on the rough part. do you have the same issues with running?
