My First Skinny


I finally gave in and decided to have a go at making a Skinny. Lesley is to blame for introducing the idea into my head and she has some fab ones on her blog. The link is to be found down the left hand side. A Skinny needs to be 5"x3". Bit like an ATC but more room to decorate. I have used Adirondack ink pads in Cranberry and Butterscotch to colour the piece of card, blended with a wet baby wipe. I then stamped in black staz-on onto white shrink plastic and stuck it in the oven to shrink. I can never manage it with the heat gun, it sticks to itself every time!
The main image is from Lost Coast Designs and the others are from Cherry Pie Art. I then fixed all the pieces of shrink plastic onto the Skinny using sticky-dots. I wanted to use silicone glue but has run out. Finally a couple of little Primas and it was done. I am sending it to a friend and I hope she likes it. Thank you Lesley for another crafty addiction....I think?
