My newest creation - Lily with heart pendant

Here's a picture of the latest crafty creation that I have made,finished just last night.  I have named her Lily.

Lily is made from gold and cream mohair and she stands just 6" tall.  She's quite shy and bashful (which is why her ears are turned down). Lily is proudly wearing her pink heart pendant necklace which I  have made from shrink plastic.  I cut a large heart from pink shrink plastic and rubber stamped it with the teddy image and the "I love you" sentiment.  I then drew a scallop border and punched the hole for the hanging thread.


I heated the shrink plastic with my heat gun - although I prefer to bake and shrink it in the oven.  However, I think this may just be because I panic when shrinking it with the heart gun and the plastic starts contorting and twisting into all manner of shapes.  "Just Keep Going 'til its Flat" I keep repeating over and over in my head but I always feel like shouting "AAARRRGGGHH".  You see, if I bake it in the oven for a minute or so, I can't see the impossible shapes it twists into before settling and I don't start to panic.  Fortunately Lily's little heart shrunk perfectly and she is proudly wearing it now.

This picture is just to show off Lily's little head band made with tiny beads - she's a real girly girl!

I'm going to enter Lily into 2 challenges this week:

Thanks for looking and I'll be back with some more cards for the remainder of the week - can't make a bear every day, they take too long!
