I have been playing with shrink plastic or Shrinky Dink. Using stamps for the images. The above plastic pieces I applied alcohol ink after they were shrunk. Don't use the blending solution or it will smear the ink. The branch,clock and small bird are on white plastic.The bird image was stamped on the collage as well as on plastic. It really does shrink down. So when you pick a stamp make sure it is of good size.
Art doll 1. Her face I left uncolored. Hands and frame I used alcohol ink. Pieces glued or wired to rusted tin.
Art doll 2. She is stamped on frosted plastic. Her face was stamped after the plastic was shrunk. The only color add is to her lips.
Art doll 3. All the pieces are stamped on white plastic. Colored with chalk or markers
