I love Wednesdays! It's a new challenge day at Stampotique and today it's team mate Corrie's first time being our hostess with the mostess and she is inviting us to use acetate in your creations. I confess this was quite a challenge for me, acetate is not something I usually reach for when getting inky and messy, and usually when I'm stuck I reach for favourite stamps, Moon Girl!, and go back to my arty roots which is canvas and stars and moon.
I turned my canvas the wrong way around and painted white to disguise staples etc. The background paper was made using distress inks and Tall Word Collage and Design Cube stamps. Then came the acetate bit, I stamped Heart Vine and Squiggle Arms on acetate and cut out, stuck down with glue and hid the glue with Carol's Flower small, the fact that you can see the glue through acetate is what always initially puts me off using the stuff but I like this and it takes the frame in to the central image and gives a lovely layered effect. I think I shall use acetate more often now.
Remember just by entering you are in with a chance to win $30 that's almost £18 to spend at Stampotique!!
Wishing you a lovely day, Sam xxx
