Faux Mosaics Class

I went to my local Rubberstamp store and I took a class called Faux Mosaics. We used shrink plastic (like shrinky dinks) and heated the plastic and used alcohol inks and distressed inks. My teacher was Melissa Baldwin and her store is called The Stamping Studio.

Here are two of the cards I made:
It was done with alchohol inks and distress inks. It was very fun so now I have to get some shrink plastic. I loved the colors we used. We used the clear shrink plastic .

Card #2 -



We used the white shrink plastic and alcholol inks. I really love the colors.

This is my first time using shrink plastic and how easy can you get it done. Very fun.

This is neat! I agree with Kerry - I'm jealous that your stamping store has to much!! I love my alcohol inks and never thought of using them with shrinky dinks! Very cool!
