Lunagirl - Autumn Lady

I have been struggling with shrink plastic for a long time ... partly because I did not have the right heat gun but now I have!  and I went for the shrink plastic straight away (lol) ... I used shrink plastic for printing (you can buy for example here) and although I was a sceptical at first, it worked a treat! I printed it with a very old inkjet printer and it came out beautifully ... here is the result:
The fabulous leave image is from Lunagirl
printed on frosted shrink plastic, cut out and shrank with the heatgun.
The back is covered with patterend paper from BoBunny, the front with Glossy Accents.
I puncheda hole at the top before shrinking the leave because I wanted to make it into a charm
The finished project is a tag for Lunagirl's Autumn challenge with one of the beautiful Lunagirl images, BoBunny and Scrapcake paper, Mulberry flower, some lace and ribbon
but, of course, you could use the charm for all sorts of projects.
And there is still time to play along with Lunagirl Moonbeam's Autumn challenge!

Hope to see you there, Petra.
