Woodware - Acetate

Acetate is one of those things in my stash that I rarely use. However at Woodware this week I have been asked to use acetate. It probably took me as long to find the acetate than actually make the card ...... such is the life of a crafter!!

Staying on a dragonfly theme I used this gorgeous Stampendous cling of a dragonfly. I stamped it on to a piece of acetate with black Staz-on. Once dry I pressed a clear embossing pad on the inked side. Then I brushed on some mica powders, I used perfect pearls but any make will do. Be sure to "pounce" it well with a flat brush to make sure ti sticks to the acetate, then lightly brush off any excess with a soft brush.

Once you turn it over the mica powder shimmers through the mica but both stamped image and powder are protected behind the acetate.


Sadly I found it hard to capture the shimmer on the camera but it is lovely when it catches the light.


I also die cut a dragonfly from acetate and used the same technique on the wings. I also used the same dragonfly stamp to gold emboss onto gold metallic card for the background panel.

I am first up this week on the Woodware challenge blog. So it will be interesting to see what the other girls do with their acetate. Hope you have a good week.
