Karate Keyrings (M4M DT post)

Hi Everyone! 
Here is my OFF THE PAGE project for the current challenge over at the Mad for Markers Challenge blog.


Now I admit, I don't do a lot of OTP but I had to have a go at making shrinky keyrings for my niece and nephew.
 

This top photo is before shrinking.

I printed the digital images onto the inkjet compatible shrink plastic.
 
 
Voila! The finished product, complete with swivel clips.

Notice how much darker Ian's hair is in the bottom photo.
This is why I decided not to colour the skin as it ended up being really blotchy and dark.

Copics Used:
Blonde Hair: E50, E53, YR21
 
Brunette Hair: E50, E53, E57, E59
 
Belt: C7
 
I'd love to hear about your experiments with shrink plastic and copics!
 
Happy Colouring!
~ Susan xxox
