Polka Dot Challenge


Something a little different today - an acetate transparency card! This is for Michelle's polka dot challenge on the AP blog. (Click here to see all the other cards submitted.) I started with an acetate transparency card base. The background layer is stamped with the Even Dot bl stamp and then I used Art Institute "Dries White" adhesive to make the flourishes. Then I added Art Glitter over it to make it sparkle. The owl is stamped on the back of the transparency cardfront so that it makes an overlay and also reverses the image. This way the rough (inkjet) side of the transparency sheet is on the inside of the card and the nice shiny smooth side is on the front. Oh - I almost forgot! This was inspired by two designs I saw a while back - the "hey birdie" piece in this awesome Meadow series by Nina and also this card by Dawn McVey.
Did you see the latest Mystery Hostess challenge? I created a card this afternoon for Helle's challenge, so I'll be posting that soon. Can you believe I've posted every day this week?!

I love your card, great use of the dries white glue and the transparency! I am a representative of Art Glitter and would like to offer you a space in our gallery on www.artglitter.com. If you are interested please contact me. I can use the photo you have on your blog but what I would really like is a close up picture of the glitter embellishments too if that's possible. Usually if you can take a picture outside in the sun you get sparkles all over! I also like to have a list of the materials used and a brief description. Then I'll put it in our gallery and link to your blog if that's okay. Then if you have a “favorite links” on your blog we’d appreciate a spot.
