Acrylic Challenge Gone Shrinky

Hey there, welcome back to the Tiddly Inks Challenges. Okay, so it's not my week to do the Tiddly Challenge, but I couldn't resist, as well I read the calendar wrong ;D

Today's challenge #66 is to use acrylic somewhere on your project. Be it acrylic paint, spray or embellishments.

I ran out and bought some "printable" Shrinky Dink paper just for this challenge. I had so much fun that I made several projects including a fun Lilli Lolita bag tag for my daughters back pack. I blurred out my daughters name on the banner (Pirate Jane Extras), so it looks a bit wonky in the photo. I coloured Lili Lolita then scanned her before printing her onto the the Shrink paper.


After Photoshoping around the edges of these Tiddy pre-colured images, in Word, I resized them to apporx. 3" by 2 1/2" each, adjusted the transparency to 56% then printed them on the shrink paper.


The shrunk Tiddly tiles made perfect little tile images to put on 3.5" x 3.5" cards.

All these gorgeous pre-coloured art pieces are available at the Tiddly Ink Basement: Apple Tree, Heart Home, Grow a Little Impatient, Love Grows, and Vase.
