JFF this week they have set a particularly tricky challenge "Acrylic / Plastic" set by Zoe and Ang C those DT gals like to keep us on our toes :-) I must admit to being a bit stumped even thought about passing with this one but I hate to be left out. Eventually I used a beer mat which I inked with summer sky and bamboo and a bit of worn lipstick. I then backed stamped with chateau gray and a crackle look stamp also the trees. Istill wasn't quite sure where this was going but like a good JFF trooper I soldiered on and decided to stamp and emboss the same tree looked good but what next ???. Took me most of the afternoon to ponder and shrink plastic popped into my head whilst sipping a glass of red wine. So I stamped butterflies, birds and carnival masks and a bird in a cage (that ended up looking like a guitar LOL) onto shrink plastic coloured them and shrunk em. I ended up with my plastic garden. Quite pleased really I managed anything. Thanks for the challenge I enjoyed it but must get back to the 60 Order of Service. Take care all. Hugs XX.
