Some Acetate For Stampotique

Hi, it's Stampotique Wednesday again and we have a fab new look over on the challenge blog so please pop over and check it out.
Corrie is our hostess this week with a clearly fun challenge:

Hello and happy Wednesday to you. Now, if you are anything like me, you will keep all wrapping paper, cardboard and of course acetate (clear plastic). We all get lots of it : packaging. I particularly like acetate to use in my projects, whether it is to stamp on or use it in any other way. I just love it. So this week I would like YOU to use a bit of acetate. Let your imagination run wild and surprise me !!! 
Here's mine

I started with a painty background. I sprayed watered down Fresco paints,then stencilled, and finally stamped my new favourite Text Block 3 and embossed in white.
Now time for the acetate.

Femme Collage has been stamped and embossed onto acetate, then covered on the back in gilding flakes.
This is my mop up sheet that I used for my flowers. Note to self, photograph before cutting out lol. The flowers have been stamped with another favourite, Fax to Wolfgang.
Thanks for a great challenge Corrie, I really enjoyed it and I hope you will tear yourself away for the Olympics and join in, remember there's a chance to win a $30 gift certificate.
Thanks very much for looking x
