Purple Gemstone Card

This is another card I made for Stamptivity ...

Stamptivity Gemstone Stamp; Shrink Plastic; Queen & Co Felt Ribbon & Pearls.

For the embellishments... I stamped the Gemstone stamp onto clear shrink plastic with white StazOn ink, then cut closely around the shape, before heating & shrinking (following manufacturer's instructions) & attaching the finished pieces to the card with glue dots.

There's a bit of a knack to getting this right as the stamp tends to slip on the plastic...several of my first attempts went in the bin!  I recommend sanding the plastic & don't worry too much as any inperfections are less obvious when shrunk!
