Ooh sunshine's back! Hubby has even been in the garden with the boys and was spotted doing a bit of weeding. It's Saturday which means all eager LIMettes await the latest challenge from Chrissie and Mandi at Less is More. This week they've chosen 'Acetate'. Eeeeek! Here's my take:
Now a couple of things I'm not very good at. 1). Keeping acetate clean and scratch free as I use it. 2). Photographing cards with acetate on. So I got out an piece of thick Window Sheet - previously scratched from last attempt to use it some time ago and thought I now have the tools to fix it! So I ran it through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and viola - most of the scratches are now hidden from view. I also like the way it's embossed so deeply too, making the window sheet turn white. Here's another photo to show it up a little better:
After my failure last week to stamp bright pink on to black (after reading all your fab tips and trying them, I have to admit I gave up!), I decided to use this as my colour combo this week to make up for it. I've added a strip of Melon Mambo card with a punched scallop trim border, layered with some Basic Black Grosgrain ribbon. Next I stamped the dotty frame from Four Frames and punched it out with the Decorative Label punch, then inked up the sentiment only on this stamp from Oval All using the Basic Black Marker and stamped away. Then once i'd stuck it all down I went and smudged the ink with my thumb!!
Never mind, these things happen. Thanks for all your comments on my entry last week, sorry I didn't return the visit to most of you, we've had a week plagued by ill health but are all now on the mend again. I'm looking forward to some blog hopping this evening.
