playing with strink plastic

I am giving a away this strink plastic plaque
If you would like to recieve this leave a message at
the end of this post! I Will be pulling out a name
on the 24th August.
Shrink plastic is a sheet of thin plastic which comes
in clear, white & coloured sheets you which
can draw or rubber stamp,or print on and it shrinks
7 times smaller & 7 times thicker.
And can be used to make badges, jewelery,
scrapbook+card embellishments.

I am new to to shrink plastic and this project
was made because of a mistake of using
(non printable)sheets.but even mistakes can work!x
This is the original digiart design I used for my plaque.
I printed the image onto (non printable) white strink plastic at
8 by 8inches & using a heating tool applied to plaque.
the plaque began to fade and reduce in size by 7 times
I coated it in glitter & embossing powder, re-heat with tool.
this gave me an pearlised effect,
I measured plaque & re printed original image to new size.
cutting out elements,I glue on an re-applied
embossing powder to seal printed image.
lastly embellished with sequin flowers & gems,
pearlised button and lace background.

Oh, this is so pretty. I'd love to win this! Purple is my favorite color, and do I see a fairy in this picture? I am really into fairies right now.
