To See Or Not To See. . .

. . .that was the Try a New Technique Challenge on SCS yesterday, to make an acetate card. This is the first acetate card I've made. I've always liked them when I've seen them, but never got around to actually making one. This was a lot of fun. I used the See You Around jumbo wheel with StazOn Cotton White on the transparency, and I have to say it was difficult to keep the wheel from sliding rather than rolling. Next time I try an acetate card, I will definitely use a stamp rather than a wheel. I added some Waterfall Stickles and bling from Walmart on the acetate to add some "bubbly" fun. The focal image is colored with Blue Bayou, Soft Sky and River Rock with an Aquapainter. The other difficult thing about this card was photographing it. It's hard to get good lighting without creating a glare! Hope your day is off to a great start! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Silly Sealife, See You Around jumbo wheel; Ink- Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, River Rock, Regal Rose, StazOn Cotton White; Paper- Blue Bayou, River Rock, Whisper White, transparency; Accessories- Waterfall Stickles, bling from Walmart, paper piercer, Aquapainter, organdy ribbon by Darice.
