Inspiration Emporium Challenge~ shrink plastic

It's Inspiration Emporium designer challenge time again!
This challenge is shrink plastic. I knew I wanted to make a flower so I used Alterations bigz die Tattered Florals to cut the shrink plastic.
I stamped the leaves with Dylusions Doodle Parts and Archival ink and cut them out. The hand is from Tim Holtz Oddities  stamp set, stamped with Archiaval Jet Black ink and cut out.
I used my heat tool to do the shrinking. I didn't want the flower to shrink out flat so I just heated it enough to curl it, same with the leaves, I wanted more dimension. I added more color with q-tips and archival ink. Next, I glued all the layers together and glued on the pearl brad.  I covered the small tag with paper from Tim's idea-ology vintage shabby stack, went around the edges with my tracing wheel for some faux stitching. I added the sentiment with words from idea-ology chit-chat verbages.
I wrapped vintage lace around an old wooden spool and attached the tag.
I hope you order some shrink plastic and play, it's so fun watching the shrinking process!
