Sylvia's Peacoock Lady

Isn't this fantastic! I found it over on Sylvia's lovely blog Poppy's Paper Craftpatch and asked if she'd mind me 'clipping it' to show you all. After my poor attempt at shrink plastic last week I thought you'd like to see how it should be done!
This is what Sylvia wrote explaining how she made a simple piece of plastic into a lovely topper for her card....
Thought I would share this little bit of Fantasy with you , which I made today using shrink plastic, just for a change. It's a bit fiddly to work with, but great fun when it starts to curl, at which point I usually come out in a hot sweat (or maybe that's just my age). I love this Elusive Images Peacock Lady stamp from Glenda Waterworth, and have set it onto a very simple background so as not to detract from the image. (To be honest, I just couldn't find anything in my stash which looked "right")! Parts of the headdress were coloured with Sakura Gelly Roll pens. The piece was edged with gold Krylon then finished off with a coating of Diamond Glaze and a light sprinkling of Glamour Dust whilst wet. The turquoise Bazzill card was wrapped with gold thread, and two tiny beads were added, also on gold thread.
Thanks for popping by - Hugs, Sylvia xxxx
