Dipped in Delight!

Hi everyone!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Today I have a happy little mini card with a 'special' extra touch.

All of the supplies for this card are from Raisin Boat Stamps and this set 'Sweet Treats' is one of my favorites.  I took one of the sentiments and curved it on the acrylic block so it would wrap around this darling candy apple.  I love that clear stamps can be manipulated to fit a card or layout!  This apple was colored with Copic markers and the 'candied' section is covered in Glossy Accents.  Looks yummy enough to eat:)

The special touch here are the shrink plastic charms made from the same stamp set.  I scratched up one side of shrink plastic to  help the Copic color stick and then heated them with my heat gun.  They are perfect miniture versions of the stamps and are so stinkin' cute.  I played and played with the shrink plastic to see all of the cute charms I could make.  A tip for everyone, I tried to shrink in the oven also but found that the pieces shrunk faster and were easier to work with when I used my heat gun.  Below are the Raisin Boat supplies used to make this card.

Thanks for checking out my blog!
