Two for One!

After doing the challenge at Less is More last week, I was determined to enter every week. The challenge this week is Acetate - I thought hmm not too bad - I have worked with acetate before - but beware Avril - Pride comes before a Fall!!!

I have never worked with a 'whole' piece before and what a difference that makes.
Decided on Saturday what I was going to do - but had a busy weekend and didn't get around to it till Tuesday. I stamped straight onto the acetate with the birthday stamp and then positioned the Clarity Swirl around that. That was the easy bit, putting the card together was the nightmare! The bow to hold it all together was a disaster so I tried one of Debby 4000's 'flat bows', mine just doesn't look as good.
This card has been photographed around the house and I'm still not happy with it.



Thanks for looking, will show another soon!

Great stamping Avril, acetate is notoriously difficult to get a neat print and your is super!
Photographing it is another matter however. This doesn't look too bad at all... I can't see a reflection of you in it!
I'll look forward to the next one!
