Turning Japanese!

Latest additions to my oriental collection...

The card below was made using Shrink Plastic.  This is a fantastic technique which gives you wonderful effects and can be used in all types of craft, from card making to jewellery.  The image of the Geisha was stamped with a pearlescent gold ink pad onto black shrink plastic. Then comes the fun bit...using a heat gun or you can put it in the oven if you prefer, you shrink the plastic down. At first it looks like it's all gone horribly wrong but don't panic, you get there in the end.
