See-through Acetate Card












We just began game 2 of AAA Cards today. And it's a quiet start (we're so brand spankin' new). I dropped by our Paper Playful neighbor, Poppy Sketches, to see how they are doing. They are new too, they are just at game 4.  I took their sketch and colors, twisted and balled them all up and came up with this!

Over at CASE Study, they have an artist who's card is quite unique. So in my mind, as I tangled up Poppy Sketches, I was hoping to work up a card to use at CASE Study too. So...da da!

One little problem, I've got this red cast in my photo. The basket behind is hot pink and the distress stickles in the background is pink too...but everything comes off a little reddish. WHICH IS MESSING UP MY INK COLOR #@&*%##!!!  I used Tim Holtz distress pens, and that looks like blue instead of a minty color. C'est la vie'

recipe:
Classic Linen, Natural White Cardstock
Tim Holtz Seasonals Markers, Picked Raspberry & Ripe Persimmon (mixed), Mowed Lawn, and Peacock Feathers mixed with Mowed Lawn. I was really trying to get the colors right (rats)
Clear Acetate
Stamps from Jillibean, Handwritten Sentiments
MementoLuxe, Tuxedo Black (and it was still wet when I took the pic's)
Martha Stewart Clear Fine Glitter (I hoped to dry up the ink a bit :)

I had fun making this card, I like the technique, but it took ALL day to dry.

Hey, thanks for the visit, drop by anytime! Drop by AAA Cards CAS Challenge and play a round with us too. Cheers, Victoria Lavender
