What a happy bunny I was to be picked for June's Guest Designer spot over at Bah Humbug. I've been entering their weekly challenge since it started in January and now have a box brimming over with Christmas cards so a big thank you to Ann, Irene and Max for organising the challenge and keeping us all one step ahead. We're going to be soooooo smug in December when all our cards are ready (dare I confess though that I haven't done any of the inserts?)
Anyway the challenge this week is to use Acetate in your creation. Now I just love working with acetate - glittering it, using it for shaker cards but for this project I decided to make an easel card with an embossed acetate overlay
I made a background using my brayer and the bluey green end of a Big & Juicy Hydrangea ink pad. I kept it fairly light and masked off a moon and added some darker teal coloured hills in the foreground. I then stamped Santa in his sleigh and Magnolia trees. I addeda little colour to the trees with a marine promarker and then a little glitter to make them look frosty. Tilda was stamped onto a piece of card and coloured with promarkers and attached with 1mm foam pads to give just a little dimension. I made the background for the sentiment using the same ink pad and my brayer.
I then made the acetate overlays using Tim Holtz snowflake stamps and white EP. I was well chuffed as I usually buckle the acetate and have to start again but it worked first time. The acetate overlays were attached with white eyelets and a little turquoise organza ribbon.
Thanks to Ann, Irene and Max for letting me loose on the challenge lol and to you for looking.
I hope you will find time to join the challenge this week, I'm really looking forward to seeing your 'Acetate' creations
