Floral and acetate

Oh, to be more technical!  All of a sudden something happened to the settings on my scanner - I need to find someone to help create a "full" image.  Oh, well...
I hope you can see the results of my experiment - to meet challenges using an unusual item/recycling (acetate).  I used the same leafy embossing folder on the acetate - the result was a milky look on the embossed leaves.  I then placed it over the green layer in the same spot - except I should have had a larger piece as much of it is covered with the image.  The acetate was from some packaging, and there were lots of bumps and curves so the flat section was a bit small.  This is something I will do again - maybe with flower dies next time.  I used a bit of the CB birthday folder, and a Hampton Arts stamp, colored with chalk pencils.  I finally got to use the picket fence die I bought from Joan's Gardens.

  1. I love how you used both embossing folders; I would not have thought of cutting the birthday embossing paper down, but you did and it works beautifully. Great job on this week's challenge!
