Thought I would share this little bit of Fantasy with you , which I made today using shrink plastic, just for a change. It's a bit fiddly to work with, but great fun when it starts to curl, at which point I usually come out in a hot sweat (or maybe that's just my age). I love this Elusive Images Peacock Lady stamp from Glenda Waterworth, and have set it onto a very simple background so as not to detract from the image. (To be honest, I just couldn't find anything in my stash which looked "right")! Parts of the headdress were coloured with Sakura Gelly Roll pens. The piece was edged with gold Krylon then finished off with a coating of Diamond Glaze and a light sprinkling of Glamour Dust whilst wet. The turquoise Bazzill card was wrapped with gold thread, and two tiny beads were added, also on gold thread.
Thanks for popping by - Hugs, Sylvia xxxx

Oh Sylvia she is just gorgeous!! You are quite right anything else on the card would detract from her. How clever you are!!
Don't you mean Sourcrout gelly pens?
(I think we should rename them)
But Sylvia, she could be your ABAA entry this month, with the title

"A bird in the hand?
No! A bird on the head. "

love Gini xx

Oh Sylvia, this is gorgeous... I have never been that eventurous, but you have really inspiered me. I have had a play with shrink palstic in the past and just gave up as I was never happy with the finished result, but the addition of the Diamond Glaze and Glamour Dust really sets it off. No one would have guessed how that was made... your are so clever.
Thanks for sharing such a wonderful peice of creative artwork.
have a wonderful weeekend
hugs rozzy xx

Neenie said...

What a gorgeous piece of work!! I honestly thought that it was ceramic, Sylvia! Stunning project and you should be thoroughly proud of yourself. You've probably boosted the sale of shrink plastic! I've got some, but not had the courage to try it yet. Bravo!x :D
