Flourished Night Sky - Moon and Stars Earrings

Yogi here today with some earrings... I love the new dies Suzanne just came out and the clear stamps under the Elizabeth Craft Designs label. I've made some samples for Els to take to her shows including these earrings.

I'm using an A Way With Words dies  "Flourished Night Sky - Moon & Stars" 4pce set from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

And I'm using a clear quote stamp set from Quietfire Design ("Soar Collection") also available on Elizabeth Craft Designs HERE 

I colored a piece of clear Shrink Plastic with alcohol inks in a raspberry and a blue. Die cut and then shrunk using my heat gun. I was worried about the skinny tail on the flourish, but it just wrapped itself around making a natural loop for my earring findings. The earring shrunk to about 3/4" square.

NOTE: I find Shrink Plastic has a grain and depending in which direction you cut, it reacts differently when heated. I cut mine parallel to the long side.

For the tag: I dry embossed the bottom half of the tag using Elizabeth Craft Designs "Clouds" embossing folder from a pearlized white/gold cardstock. Hit the high points with Distress "Stormy Sky".

Stamped the quote using Versafine "Majestic Blue" and clear embossed.

Die cut the star at top to hang the tag. Punched a couple holes to loop the earrings to the tag.

It was fun making these earrings. Hope you give it a try.
