Owing to lack of time, it's been a while since I have been able to join in over at CAS Mix Up.
Even though I am trying to expand into other inkiness (see post below!) I promised myself that I would support CAS Mix Up challenges whenever I could.
I was however tempted to run a mile from this months challenge! Acetate? Acetate???? Seriously??? Me and the transparent stuff have a Love/Hate relationship... 😖
But cos it's their second birthday and I promised - I made myself do it. In fact I did 2.
And if I thought using Acetate was difficult, taking a decent pic was nigh on impossible!
But here it is.
I actually used a white linen textured card base but it looks - well- not quite white here.
I had a small piece of watercolour card so it got the Pixie Powder treatment. (Am loving these Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders - the irridescent effect is fab in real life)
The colour I used here is called Plum Twist.
I took my acetate, and stamped the single dandelion (a Lavinia Stamp) then heat embossed in white.
The sentiment is one of my favourites and I have had it a while - also heat embossed in white.
I attached it by a single glue dot placed in the middle of the dandelion head!
After trimming the panel, I had a teeny bit left over - hence the punched butterfly and topped this with acetate too before adding the little blingy.
As well as Cas Mix Up (Stamping/Acetate/Heat Embossing) am also popping into the Playground with my little snippet of watercolour card, also sharing at ATS&M - Make your Mark and Just Add Ink where the challenge is Add Water.
Second card coming up.......
My second effort used a whole sheet of acetate. If I thought the first card was hard to photograph - let me tell you - Acetate and Mirri - a recipe for disaster!
I ended up putting two pieces of white card behind it so that you could see that it is just made from acetate!
This was a simple card to make but I am pleased with it.
Stamping then embossing with Metallic Platinum in two corners using an old flourish stamp and a simple Inkylicious sentiment embossed onto dark blue card.(Although it looks black - it IS dark Blue!)
Matted onto silver mirri and placed on the front.
A slightly larger blue and silver panel on the inside back - to write on!
A couple of punched out mirri card hearts finished this card which I thought might be nice for an engagement or anniversary.
Sorry this was another picture heavy post but if you're still reading then thanks for bearing with me- I appreciate you visiting. xx
