Shrink plastic mini flowers

These tiny flowers are made from shrink plastic, both clear and white coloured. I cut them out using various flower punches, and coloured either the back or the front with watercolour pencils or coloured permanent pen. The flowers start out about 15mm big and when heated with a heat gun shrink to about 6mm and the coloured pencil or pen shrinks down too making the colour more vibrant!
I'm pleased with the effect, however the process can be a bit fiddly!
