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?!
