Life is good!
This card is for Viva la Verve's last sketch challenge with a twist for February. The twist this time was to use acetate somewhere on the card. Well, I've never used acetate before, so this was a good way to ease myself in.
My base card is Very Vanilla with layers of Pacific Point and DP from Basic Gray's new Marrakech 6 x 6 pad. This paper is gorgeous and goes really well with SU!'s current In Colors Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango. The first element is Pacific Point and more DP. The next element is Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango with a Pacific Point striped ribbon tied around it in a bow. The focal image was stamped on Very Vanilla with a stamp from Verve's Artful Elegance set in Pacific point ink. It was cut out with a circle Nestabilities die and popped up on more Very Vanilla with 3M foam squares. Then it was matted with Tangerine Tango and Pacific Point which was also popped up on foam squares. The sentiment is also from the set and was stamped on acetate with Timber Brown StazOn ink. It was punched out with my small oval punch and layered with Very Vanilla and Pacific Point, also punched with oval punches. The next picture shows the shine of the acetate. A few turquoise Dew Drops add some accents and finish the card off.
Thanks for dropping by!
