Valentine Cameo Earrings

For this pair of shrink plastic earrings, I decided to try the cameo effect that was shown in the book I got from the library (Shrink! Shrank! Shrunk! by Kathy Sheldon) this week. She had some cute cameos, but I wanted something I could wear for V-day, since it's coming up. So I punched the first two shapes and free-hand cut the heart. I colored them white, pink and white, and shrunk them up.
I glued them all together with some E6000, added a jump ring, and some earring wires. Here they are all completed:
I didn't realize how small they would be, and originally thought I might could make these into necklaces, but you can see they shrunk right. The heart is barely a half-inch across!
