No shrinking violet


Hi all ......
I am having a shrink plastic moment, feel like a kid when it starts squirming lol, this is what I've come up with.
The papers used are from crafty bitz,roughed up and torn a little to give it character.
The sign is shrink plastic cut with a tim holtz hanging sign die, distressed with scattered straw, the word "cafe" was stamped and coloured with promarkers before shrinking, the bracket was distresses with rusty hinge and blk soot.



This lovely woj image coffee 2 go has been coloured in with promarkers The following were used.

Hair satin, sandstone caramel
skin almond blush
dress etc tea green soft green
cup caramel cinnamon



The flower was made using you guessed it shrink plastic... cut with Tin Holtz tattered flower die, coloured with distressed ink scattered straw, the back petal is a piece of vellum cut with the ek retro flower punch and martha stewart edger punch doily.

Hope you liked my creation I certainly had fun doing it..

Bye for now Sue xx

Fab! I've never seen shrink plastic mixed with tim holtz before - but it works! This is a great example of combining feminine with distressing, love it!
