Bad grammar aside, did you know that you can combine your cricut markers and shrinky dinks and get amazing results??

Here is Tink after I drew her with the markers and cut it out (she was done at 6 inches)


Then I colored her in with my watercolor pencils


and here she is after I shrunk her


My daughter and I also did Fawn and Silvermist. I don't know why Silvermist did not draw as well as the others and I tried to fix her face with the marker myself (which is why she looks kinda funny). Fawn is at 4 and 1/2 inches and Silvermist is at 6. I was not allowed to color these in.





Thanks for looking!

I used Max Pressure, Blade Depth of 6 and multi-cut twice. I didn't have speed control because I used my Gypsy.

I like this idea. May have to play with it. Where did you get your Shrinky Dink material? I think I have a small stash but will likely want more.

Isn't using Shrinky Dink material fun? I love it!!!! I have also used it to cut Halloween shapes to make charm bracelets and earrings for my daughter. As to where to buy it, I found some at Michaels either packs of glossy white or mixed materials (found it by the stamps), but in all honesty to buy the rough kind (best for drawing and coloring on) online is the way to go. Online store that carry it: shrinkydinks.com, amazon, or Klutz.com (and probably a billion other online stores).

Happy Crafting
