Artful Times - Challenge 11


Gosh these challenges come round so quickly, it's back to my turn this week to set the theme.  I chose, 'using acetate as a layer'.  I used purple and blue Dylusion ink sprays to create the background for my postcard.  I sourced a butterfly, printed it out and stuck it directly to the background.  I stamped the rays from the TH plate psychedelic grunge, in black stazon onto the acetate and placed it on the background.  Cut the words wish and hope from a piece of twill and coloured them in green distress stain and positioned them on the background under the acetate so they would show through the rays.  I attached the acetate using red liner tape at the top and bottom.  I added ribbon and lace with the hot glue gun to hide where the acetate is attached.  And finally I glued the image of the girl onto the acetate.

Great PC Sam, I hadn't noticed the twill before but now I have I really like it - gorgeous colour.
That is one of my favourite folders that you used and it looks great with that old fashioned girl. Sets her off perfectly.
Hugs, Neet
