On a roll with the crafting this week

I wanted to make a special card for Lance and Robin, but I wanted to play with shrinky dinks, hmmmmmmmm what to do?

Combine them both!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I used to my Gypsy as I knew I wanted to hide lots of little lines, so with the Dreams Come True cartridge I laid out Jasmine and her man at 9 inches, hide all contours and then added the circle from French Manor to his head and welded.  I cut this from the shrink material.






Next I "cut" the same image only using markers this time on white paper





Then I laid the shrink material on top of the markered image and with a fine tip black marker copied all the interior lines, then flipped it over and used markers to fill in the colors, then baked the happy couple until they were done.  Looking back now I see that I didn't quite come line to line on some, but I am still happy.

Then I used DCT again to cut the phrase, shadow and layers at 3 inches.  Paper is from the Far East DCWV stack.  The key chain is mounted with a big glue dot for easy removal.
