Shrink Plastic and Ching-Chou Kuik's Flowing in Blue

It's challenge time again over at Sweet Pea Stampers and this week we want to see your punches! So if you want to be in with a chance of winning three fabulous sheets of Sweet Pea digital decoupage provided by the lovely Amy over at Crafty Purple Frog, then you know what to do - grab those punches and getting creating!

Now you'll have to think a little about my project to work out where punches have come into it. My project this week is something a little different - yep I've been playing and experimenting again!!! I warn you now it's not perfect, but I'm definitely going to work some more on this project to get it right as it's showing potential! I hope you like and aren't too disappointed that it's not a card or papercraft project.


I stamped the image Flowing in Blue by Ching-Chou Kuik onto some shrink plastic using Stazon Ink. The image was then coloured in using Derwent Coloursoft Pencils and Sakura Clear Star Gel Pen. I used a hole punch to make a hole either end of the pendant prior to shrinking it. Once I'd shrunk it to size, I used a gold paint pen on the edges and then heat embossed the front using clear detail powder. The chain and findings are from a necklace that I got in the 10 items for £5 sale from Claire's Accessories. The beads have been attached to head pins before adding them to lengths of chain.

Thanks for stopping by today.

  17. Claire, what a gorgeous piece of jewellery you have made here. It's such a pity for these gorgeous images not to be on more jewellery items as they are wonderful. Just wish I could do things like that. Take care, Kym xxx
