Using Acetate

The Artful Times ladies are asking to see an acetate layer this time around. I love acetate, so I was straight in for this one. My background was made with some Dylusion inks and a mask. This was then overstamped with Tims background stamp from the Papillon plate, and embossed in black. Next came a little distressing around the edges, followed by a lick of a green ink pad.

The acetate die cuts were coloured with a mixture of Stazon inks and nail varnish. These were then overstamped with a Stampotique text stamp and a Scrollswork texture stamp. The clock is a Heidi Swapp ghost clock that I've had for ages, and it's all held together with some game spinners and a brad.
I really enjoyed making this, so thanks very much for the challenge Sam.

I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is to use a favourite technique. Mine is definitely making my own backgrounds.
Thanks very much for looking x

  13. Nail varnish! Of course! I always find alcohol inks hard to control but nail varnish would be better - well definitely based on your stunning project! Don't be surprised if you see some soon. Thanks for being a huge source of inspiration, again! Hugs, Buttons x
