Something Different (for me anyway)!

Well thought I'd try something a little different for a change. I bought some Staz On white ink whilst on my travels back in the UK and thought I'd do a little card by stamping onto acetate! Bit daring for me lol! So here it is...


A little close up of the Hippo (Penny Black) which I paper pieced...


The paisley design (Penny Black "Perfect Paisley") was stamped onto the acetate using the Staz On, I have to say I was quite impressed with the results as the ink really is opaque. I also stamped the sentiment (Penny Black "You are kind!") onto acetate and attached it onto purple card the white card with little heart brads. As I've torn the white card it fits with this week's Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge which is use torn edges on your project. Finally I added the Hippo and the ribbon to finish! It took a while to do the card but I like the effect so may try it again. Something different.
