Finished Earrings

Finished Earrings

I was lucky enough to win a set of Michael Strong‘s new Whimsical Owls as a prize and have finally had a few minutes to play with them. They are a matching pair of designs and I immediately thought of earrings!

I stamped them onto frosted shrink plastic using StazOn Black ink and then coloured very lightly with some watercolour crayons. You can see how lightly I coloured and yet I was still surprised after shrinking the first one at how vivid they’d become – that’s why I took the before and after shot. I gave them a coat of pva glue to seal the colour – they may yet get another coat.

It's amazing how intense the colours become after shrinking
