The vines have it!

I purchased the April SOTM Floral Vines and wanted to play with some acetate that my friend Becky Sheppard (an angel in Sierra Vista, AZ) sent me to experiment with.

I stamped the image with Black Staz-On but I didn't really get a good image (should have cleaned the stamp good before using). After drying I used my Crystal Lacquer and loose glitter to color in the open areas. I used small purple brads to attach the acetate panel to the scrap yellow from my paper bucket and layered this on a piece of purple cardstock scrap. The text is from our Inspirational Sayings set stamped in Noir PH ink. The card base is from our Natural Cardstock Assortment. This is a rather simple card and I hope to play more with the acetate like running it through a Cuttlebug embossing folder and such. Hopefully next week I'll get something done.

Watch for another blog hop starting Saturday night! We will be making scrapbook pages using our hostess sets and GWPs. Mine is a rather silly card showcasing our 3 granddaughters.

Love the glitter & crystal lacquer filling in the flower petals and leaves! Acetate is so much fun and this stamp set is GORGEEUS!
