I ♥ Promarkers Challenge 27 - Acetate

I've got a lovely evening all to myself today. Hubby has taken our son to the England match. The amount of excitement and hyperactivity going on today from my boy has been mad! I hope he enjoys the football after all that!

Onto this weeks challenge at I ♥ Promarkers - something that tends to get forgotten about a lot in paper crafting - Acetate. All you need to do is to include acetate somewhere on your card.

Our sponsor this week is Wendy from Digital Delights, and the prize is a $10 gift certificate to spend on digis in her store. Wendy has very kindly provided the whole DT with some of her fab images to work with. I chose Bumble Bee Larry and Bumble Bee Larry Plane.

I've made a shadow box card this week using 2 pieces of white card 8" x 5", scored and taped together.

On the bottom layer I've coloured Bumble Bee Larry Plane with promarkers, and added some Stickles to the flowers on the plane and his wings. The sky has been inked with Big & Juicy Waterfall, which has been dabbed on lightly, leaving white patches for clouds, after masking the image. Another Larry Plane image has been added with acetate (which has been stuck into the side bit between layers), so he's inbetween the layers to give more of an impression of flying.

The top layer has had an aperture cut out with Nesties Labels 8. Then I've inked  all the edges coming into the card quite a lot with Distress Inks - Shabby Shutters, Pine Needles and Stormy Sky. Acetate has then been added to the aperture. Bumble Bee Larry has been added to the left corner with foam pads. Next, I stamped the base with flowers and added a couple of small stamped butterflies with Memento green. The bow is by Martha Stewart and the pearls are Prima. The buttons and cord are from stash.

I'm looking forward to see other ideas on how everyone uses their acetate. Please enter new work only.
