It's Picnic Time

Stampendous is having a picnic theme this week, so here is my response:

I decided to go with a picnic birthday theme.  I created all the dangling charms with Dreamweaver Stencils and shrink plastic.  First, I sanded the plastic, then traced the stencils with the Chameleon detail pen and colored them with various Chameleon alcohol inks.  I used my Big Bite to create the holes and then shrank the plastic with my heat gun.
The first picture is the LL3032 Lg Cherries.  I used the Chameleon Pens in Grass Green, Crimson Red, Spring Meadow, Bark, and Deep Black.

 The next picture was created with the LM193 Dragonfly stencil.  I used the colors Crimson Red, Grass Green, Sky Blue, Royal Blue and Deep Black.

 The final dangle was created with the LR502 Sun stencil.  It was colored with Summer Sun, Crimson Red, Warm Sunset and Deep Black.

After I made all the dangles, I attached everything with May Arts Ribbon.  That was it--and it was really fun!  After all, I got to play with shrink made me feel like I was 10 again.
