A Really Quirky Recipe!

Ok!! Quirky Craft's back after a bit of a rest, and we've decided just for the summer holidays, we're doing monthly challenges and they're going to be slightly different... they'll all be either recipes or sketches, just to keep you on your toes!! And this month's challenge, which was set up by Anne is a
A Recipe
We'd like to see on your creation,
Two different backing papers, at least one eyelet, one ribbon, and some shrink plastic!

Obviously we're not going to bite you if there's one thing missing, see what you can come up with! You can make anything you like, a card, atc, scrapbook page, altered art, tag, fatpage, or some other interesting crafty creation, anything!
Pop over to Quirky Crafts and join in!!

My card, as you can see, is a Christmas card, thought I'd better start doing a few! My two papers are from 'Modern Christmas' 6x6 pack, by Paper Cellar, I've joined them with a plain white frilly bit, as I just hate two edges butting up together. The ribbon I'm sure is Do-Crafts and the stamped stocking, (I've had for ages and this is the first time I've put the results on the blog) are clear stamps by Woodware, 'Stocking Filler' (I got them for a fiver as the shop was closing down) They've all been coloured with Promakers. The brilliant thing about this stamp set, is you can fill your stocking with different things every time. There's also, holly, the word 'ho' (for ho ho ho) a heart and a star. There was a little bell, but unfortunately, I pulled the plug out of the sink before I realised it was missing! (glug glug glug!) I stamped the stocking again onto white shrink plastic and coloured it with some acrylic paints for a change, cut it out, punched a hole into it and then blasted it with my heat gun until it shrunk to the size you can see.
(Eagle-eyed WOYWW fans may have spotted the little stocking on my shelves over the past few weeks!) ...I haven't as yet added glitter, I think I may do later, probably the very fine micro glitter, (but my Quickie glue pen is empty!) Behind the images I've added a bit of Christmas embossing, using Nesties die-cut and a cuttlebug folder.
That's it! This is on timer and we're all out watching Tom, son-in-law take up archery again. He's in a competition this afternoon... so providing there's no William Tell fans out there, shooting apples off people's heads, (that was a crossbow, Lyn) I'll add some pictures later! Bye for now!
