Bordering on Romance on Acetate


Oh my goodness I actually chose to use acetate!  

I stamped Bordering on Romance in Black Stazon onto some acetate.  Then coloured the opposite side with my Stampin' Write Markers.  I attached a piece of Whisper White to the back and cut round the flowers.  They were then popped up on Dimensionals and some Basic Rhinestones added to the centres.  I stamped the line of flowers in Basic Black onto my Crumb Cake base.  The "thank you" is stamped in Basic Black from the Faith in Nature set.

Faith in Nature is one of the many lovely hostess sets.  You can purchase these sets with your hostess pounds when you hold a workshop, join my stampers 6 (new club starting in October - e mail to reserve a place) or place an order for £150. During June and July hostesses can receive even more with sales of £325.  You earn £80 in hostess pounds (normally you require sales of £500 to reach this!) and 50% off any item.  Have a look at the flyer on my side bar and get in touch to book a party. 

As the acetate helps make this shiny and so do the rhinestones this is another entry for less is more.

I think I might even use acetate again, this was fun.  I really enjoyed colouring the back of the image.  I found that it was best to use the darker colours in the marker set as they showed up better.  I was using my Subtles Set.  Also if you don't want your colours to bleed wait until each colour is dry before adding another next to it.  As you can see from the centres of my flowers I didn't, but I quite like the effect anyway. 

Speaking of flowers, our garden is coming along, we now have the start of a patio to go with the mud.  No flowers yet though! 

Hope all is well with you and you've avoided all this rain.  Not just good weather for the ducks but also good weather for crafters!!
