Playing With Acetate At Let’s Ink It Up



Before I get into my Let’s Ink It Up card I just want to say my I Feel Pretty card was chosen as card of the week at Phindy’s Challenge how cool is that. Note to myself must go back and check the challenges more often!!!

Check out the new logo at Let’s Ink It Up, they also have their first challenge starting today of 2011 …. yay …. Anything Goes …. good one to start the new Year off with and you have a whole month to enter, a teensy teensy little reminder girls no digi images allowed.

Wonderful creations as usual from everyone of the DT girls, they are just simply divine, hop on over and feast your eyes, not only at the projects but also at what you can win this month from our sponsor Zoe from Make It Crafty …. one stamp of your choice.

The first two images of my card doesn’t really show you that it is made from acetate, I think that’s because I photographed them with the wrong background cardstock, the inside image shows it much better. Really into the acetate but will try and improve the photography on the next project.

Wanted to try the new foam stamps …. which are really cheap less than £11.00 for the four, each stamp is 4″ x 4 1/2″ …. very impressed indeed, considering they are foam. Stamped the butterfly image from the set with Brilliance, Tiramisu which is a tri-coloured ink pad then embossed with clear powder. The flower is a decoupaged stamp which was in the sale at only £2.00. Stamped Anna Griffin butterfly four times with the same ink, twice onto matching paper and twice onto vellum, one for the outside and one for the inside, buttons, beads and ribbon from stash.

    What a beautiful card. Just awesome. Had a look at some more as I haven’t visited for a while. Gorgeous cards. You certainly have oodles of talent.

  13. Hi Shirl: Just took a peek at your blog. Beautiful work! I really like your acetate card, and all the details. The red striped ribbon with the jem in centre is the perfect addition and complements the other colours so nicely.
