Kecia Deveney here - yet again using my favorite stencil by Pam Carriker called
"Create Face" (S646). I decided I wanted to make a funky shrinky dink necklace
Using a dauber and various inks by StazOn, I placed the stencil on a sheet of bright white shrinky dink paper. I carefully daubed ink over the stencil until I was satisfied with how It looked.
After letting the ink dry for a few minutes, I used a bright pink Sharpie pen to color her hair.
Next, I drew a crown, wings, a lotus flower and stamped the word "secret"
Then I punched some holes at the bottom to add to dangles. Here's how the size of the shrinky dink looks before shrinking. (Bake at 350 for 2-4 minutes)
Here's how It looks after shrinking. (I also added some brown marker over the pink hair before shrinking)
Next I worked on the dangles using Laurie Mika's stencil, "Milagro" (L785). I did the same technique using a dauber and StazOn inks. Here's how they look before shrinking.
After Baking. You'll notice that the colors tend to get darker after baking.
Then I used jump rings to attach the dangles to the base. I also added a vintage prism in the middle. One large jump ring at the top and I can feed a chain through and wear my new necklace.
