Beaded pen

Hi everyone a quick post with my project for this weeks challenge at 613 Avenue Create!  Our optional twist this week is to make a card or gift for a friends since August 3rd is National Friendship Day.  Our sponsor this week is Kenny K and I've used the image Troublemaker which is just so appropriate and she's eating ice cream!  Couldn't be a more appropriate image!  LOL!  Ahh the good 'ol days of getting into mischief with my BFF Kim!  And Kim's favorite color is pink  :)

The skin color was so difficult to color!  Even after 
spraying the image (before shrinking) with a sealant
the Copics would still make the ink run.  I tried chalks but 
couldn't get a good color...ugh.  So this is a combination of 
chalks and Prismacolor pencils.  Then I cut the image out,
 punched a hole and shrunk it with my heat gun.  I held
the hole with my pin tool  ;)  I always feel like such a little kid 
when I work with this stuff!  I have such fond memories of 
childhood playing with it.

Ok enough pictures! LOL!

Kathi, I love this idea. I have had a piece of shrink plastic for years and never done anything with it. Your piece has giving me just the inspiration I needed to go hunt it down and give this a try.
