Hello! Heidi here to share a pair of fun shrink art earring using the New S5-143 Jewel Flowers & Flourishes and S5-144 Jewel Sentiments die templates from Julianna’s Positively Me Designer Collection from Spellbinders™.
I love using Shrinky Dinks Shrink Art to create jewelry. It is quick and easy to work with but what I love more is that I can make custom jewelry to match any outfit!
To create these earrings I used Crystal Clear Shrinky Dinks. I started but cutting the shapes using one of the tags from Jewel Sentiments and two of the flowers from Jewel Flowers & Flourishes.
Then I followed the instructions on the package for baking time and temperature. Here is a picture so you can see just how much the die cuts shrunk in size after being heated up.
Next I used Copic markers and the air brush system to add color to the shapes. I like using the Crystal Clear Shrinky Dinks and then adding color with Copics. The die cut pieces almost look like colored glass.
I wanted to add a little sparkle to the die cut shapes so I brushed on some Scrap Happy Sheer Glue and then I applied Diamond Clear Glitter to all of the pieces.
Layered and glued the die cut shapes using Glossy Accents by Ranger. Then I added pearls and I used the Stick “EM” Up Tool from The Rubber Cafe for perfect placement of the pearls. Then I applied Glossy Accents to the entire piece.
These earrings were so quick and easy to make! I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and you are inspired to give shrink art a try! If you do we would love to see some pictures.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
