ACETATE !! ,,, :-)
Mel chose the acteate ,,, and there were a few grumbles from the DT ,, but a challenge is a challenge eh !! :-)
Actually, it is much easier than you might think ! packaging often used acetate ,, Spellbinders for example so you could do a bit of recycling here too :-)
ALSO ,,, Sue Scoopy has returned to the fold after taking a couple of weeks off WELCOME BACK Scoopy :-)
AND we are having a DT call ,, we are looking for a few new DT people to join us so if you are interested in joining this FAB group of friends then have a peek at the Totally Papercrafts Challenge blog for further details.
I have recently bought some Hero Arts Acetate tags ,, perfect to use this week I thought. I recently joined in the Jennifer McGuire Inspiration Showcase online class ,, which was FABULOUS !! ( If you have never done an online class I DEFINITELY recommend it ,,, there is a new one starting soon called Holiday Boot Camp, click here for more details :-) ) anyway ,,,, Jennifer made a few fabulous creations using these acetate tags and she really inspired me to have a go too.
Acetate is difficult to photograph, so please excuse this effort, I will try to get a better piccy later when the sun is shining :-)
I placed the tag on a piece of dark blue cardstock, drew around it and cut it out, I then run the acetate tag through my Big Shot in a Swiss Dots folder, my most used folder I have to say !! LOVE it ,,, I did consider stamping a design on the blue tag but then I thought it would detract from the lovely acetate, what do you think ?I punched a few snowflakes out of plain white card using Martha Stewart punches and then glued and glittered with Art Institute Crystal glitter ( THE most sparkly glitter I found ,,,gorgeous !) I added an few Hero Arts Neutrals Gems to the centre’s and added a Hero Arts sentiment too ,, the edges of this were glittered with silver. I added some Tim Holtz Bias Tape ribbon and a Doodlebug snowflake brad to the bow at the top. I added pop dots between the acetate and card, these were hidden by the snowflakes and sentiment but does add more dimension IRL :-)
Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some fabulous cards and creations for your inspiration so hop on over to the TPC to see them :-)
