Crazy 4 Challenges #11

It's Saturday....Crazy4Challenges day!!
This week, we are challenging you to use acetate on your card. You can use it as the base of your card, part of your card of as an embellishment. What fun!! I don't have any card quality acetate (note to self: get some!), so I had to get creative!!!!


I had some Zsiage acetate letters and one sheet of printer transparency. I colored the letters with a sharpie marker (didn't have the right color in Copics) and then used Stickles over that. The "N" was the perfect seat for my sweet little CC Designs Christmas image. I LOVE these little kids!
I punched out snowflakes from transparency and patterned paper. Glued them together, offsetting the transparency and added glitter glue to the transparency snowflakes. Finally, I added pearls colored with Copics to the centers of each. When dry, I bent the transparency snowflake spokes up to add dimension. My image is colored with Prismas and Gamsol and the paper is yummy Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses. I added Marvy Puffy Marker to the hat brim and ball for some dimension. It is hard to see in the photo, but the green layer is embossed with Quickutz snowflakes embossing folder. Here is sideview picture that shows the transparency snowflakes a bit better:


You can also see the embossed a bit from this angle.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to drop by C4C to see what my fellow design teammates made this week!!
