This month, the challenge theme is April Inspirations. So you've got to find something that inspires you to make a project. Easy...especially if you are as obsessed with Pinterest as I am. Here's my inspiration photo.
Isn't this beautiful? You can check out the Etsy shop this photo came from HERE. Here's my project.
I used the gorgeous Butterfly stencil to make a Shrinky Dink charm. Let me show you the stencil size with the finished pendant.
I started by using a pre-sanded Shrinky Dink sheet, and I traced the entire butterfly with a skinny Sharpie Marker. It kind of ruined the tip of my marker, so I recommend trying a marker that has a metal tip. But do a test first to be sure it will work on the shrunken Shrinky Dinks.
Then I colored the image using Crayola colored pencils. My daughter was coloring then too, so we shared her pencils. I punched a hole in 1 wing, and then I shrunk the butterfly using my embossing gun. It's a pretty simple process that looks fantastic when the light hits it.
