Winter Wonderland Charm Card

Hello everyone!  Today is
Card Making Monday with the beautiful 
Card Making Kits from
Sherri Baldy My Besties.

This one is from the Winter Wonderland Kit
Check out the ones available at My Besties Shop

I have used papers, trim, bits and pieces and flowers from the kit
to decorate this.

I even used the stamp in a whole new way to make a charm to adorn
this card.

Let's begin

I have used Shrinky Dinks  Frosted Ruff N Ready sheets
to make this.
I bought a pack from my local art store, Michaels for $5.99.

I took the stamp in the kit and stamped on the ruff side of the sheet.

Let's talk inks

I tried both inks and I will show you the results.
Make sure to use StazOn.  Memento will smear.

If you don't have the stamp, you can use the digi.
You will need to print on a inkjet printer only for this.
Let is dry a few minutes and color as you would using the stamp.

What did I use to color. 
You don't need expensive or any special coloring tools.
I used regular colored pencils I bought at Walmart
in a 72 pack.  These are just like Crayola.  These are CraZart brand.

When you color you do NOT need to put down a lot of color as when
the charm shrinks, the color intensifies.  A very light hand will work.

Here is the stamped image colored and a hole added to hang.
Use a larger size hole punch as the hole will shrink.
I have used the standard size of 1/8"
Make sure to leave space between punched hole and all edges to allow for
the shrinkage.

Here is preshrunk with the complete shrunk charms.

You can fussy cut around or use dies to cut out the image before
you shrink.

I used a oven.  Instructions are easy.
325* for 1 to 3 minutes.
Mine took around only 2.

Here is the completed one to show you how much the color intensifies.

I have entered in challenge

Happy crafting
