Shrink Plastic Christmas Bauble Earrings

I couldn't resist seeing how the overlay baubles would work with shrink plastic.  The answer is brilliantly and I turned them into Christmas earrings.
Stamp the Happy Christmas outline stamp onto the rough side of frosted shrink plastic in Onyx Black Versafine ink twice.
Pounce Tumbled Glass, Wilted Violet and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxides onto the matching solid bauble and stamp over one of the outlines, lining up the images carefully. Repeat with the other image.
Fussy cut the images close to the outer lines and punch holes at the top of each bauble.  Shrink each bauble using a heat gun and flatten with an acrylic block.
Add jewellery findings to turn the baubles into a pair of earrings. To display the earrings, use the middle picot nested circle die to cut a plaque from stencil card. Mat onto a piece of dark blue card cut with the next size up.
Punch two small holes through the plaque and add the earrings.
