Hello, my friends! =) Hope you are having a lovely week so far. Here is a card that I made for the Designer Challenge over at Inspiration Journal.

The Inspiration Team was given an challenge over the summer and the challenge was to use Inkssencitals Surface Shrink Plastic on our projects.

I stamped the dress form from Claudine Hellmuth Studio's Domestic set on the shrink plastic with Jet Black StazOn ink. It's then colored on the back side with Copic markers then heated to shrink. I was surprised how intense the color became after the heating.

The patterned paper is from London Market 6x6 Collage Paper Pack by Pink Paislee. I stamped Hero Arts Newspaper Background on the card base with Antique Linen distress ink, but it's very subtle. I also cut a couple of flowers from the Tattered Flower Garland die and layered them to create the tiny flower embellishment. With the help of mini paper doilies and Japanese washi tapes, this is yet another asymmetric design. =) I am submitting this to the Asymmetry Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

That's all for now. Don't forget to check out what my amazing teammates created for this challenge here, they blew me away with their projects!

Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!

Now you have me hunting for my shrink plastic! Love the little dress form, and yes, the color does get concentrated as it shrinks. But it looks awesome!
