Bah humbug-acetate

Everywhere in my house today is sparkling , needless to say it's not because of housework. I've been making my challenge card for Bah humbug which this week you had to use acetate. I must be psychic I have been out of acetate for ages and decided to buy some a couple of weeks ago. Last week I bought a Magenta christmas stamp half price. It was shouting out for acetate. I stamped with Stazon and coloured the sky with promarker and glittered the snow. I then cut an aperature in the front of my card the same shape as my stamp . Cut out my image and glued it to the front of my card.  I have had a little trouble trying to get a good picture. In the second picture  I put one of those flickering night lights inside the card to try and show that it's acetate. I added blue Ribbon and used part of my new Snowflake die and glittered it too. The sentiment is LOTV. I think we'll be sparkling until next week the stuff gets everywhere. Thanks for dropping by Happy crafting Hugs x Chris

  8. Oh I bet this looked amazing with the little flickering night light behind the acetate. It is so hard to get a decent photo of anything shiny isn't it - the photos never do it justice - but this looks truly gorgeous

  9. Oh my, this is one of my favorite cards yet! I LOVE it!!! Your house may be sparkly for a while, but it's so worth it for this beautiful card!

    So you can color on acetate? (I'm new to using it.)
