Shrink Art for Alota!!

Yes my Charm is Shrink Art(Plastic Charm)!!! this process is done in the oven!
Hello everyone! Todays card was designed for Alota rubber Stamps using this SWEET NEW stamp called "Fall Fashion Girl" she is one of MANY DARLING new Releases for Alota!!

My card was designed for several challenges today!!!
Here are some of the challenges:

So for my charm above I used the stamp from Alota and stamped her in Staz on ink and then on the plastic shrink paper. I colored in the colors on the back(ruff side) and then put in the oven on 325 for about 4 minutes.

To make the charm I used the metal round piece and some metal to add my beads and pearls to!!!!

Darling stamps can be found HERE at Alota Rubber Stamps!!
Embossing folder was sent to me by Helene"Thank you Helene im loving the embossing folders hun"
I used copics to color, and white gel pen to highlight!
Embellished with ribbon(from Really Reasonable Ribbon)
Flowers,beads,tag, and stitching!!

Thank you for looking and enjoy your weekend!
