(2018 c134) Tim Holtz Shrinky Dinks, Crazy Birds Shaker



UPDATE:  As you can see below I added the regular sized Crazy Bird on the front of the card!  I thought it was just a little too plain so I added the big bird who must be encouraging more break-outs!  The photo on the right was the original post, I left all the other photos as originally posted)



Stamps and dies used:  Tim Holtz Alterations / Sizzix Framelits Set Bird Talk 561218.  The sentiment was stamped with Tim Holtz Alterations/ Sizzix Framelits Die & Stamp Set Celebration 660188.


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAToday I used  Shrinky Dinks (this is a different product from yesterday’s shaker elements.  This one has a rough side that you can color)  I tamped with Jet Black Stazon Ink and cut out with Spellbinders dies. On the right you can see the tiny shrunk birds sitting inside their dies to see the shrinkage.

Here is another photo below showing the shaker elements and there is one bird that is making a break-out through the bars (he is actually on the outside of the acetate.  The cage frame is cut with Sizzix Bigz Die Caged Bird (Which is no longer available)

The background was dry embossed with Cuttlebug – 5X7 inch Wicker Weave embossing folder after hitting the high points on one side with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with a sapphire blue embossing powder.
