City Crafter 297

Good Morning!

Today Marina is hosing the challenge at
As always Marina has given us a fun challenge Fantastic Plastic

 
Marina wants us to use something plastic on our projects - e.g. Acetate, Shrink Plastic, Friendly Plastic
 
I chose to go with Acetate and I printed on to my acetate a digital image that I first saw on Marina's blog and loved it so much I bought it!
 

IRL this looks so much nicer ... Very ethereal. It's so hard to photograph acetate. I used copics to try and colour the reverse of the acetate, they didn't work that well but they did give colour and some texture


She is so adorable ... I added some tiny sequins under the acetate and then gems on the top

 Our Guest Designer this week is Andie Miller

I'm so looking forward to seeing what you all come up with this week... If you need more inspiration check out the creations from the rest of our team on the City Crafter Blog 

Have a lovely day

Such a fun card, Ros, I can't believe it is on acetate! I too love the coloring, fabulous, inventive card! Happy Tuesday...well it is almost over for you, have a nice evening!

I am always impressed that you think outside your comfort zone and create something in a totally different style. The sweetest mermaid.....I think the coloring is fab; I love the subtle coloring of her tail ( or how do you say that in English??)
Fab card sweetie!

I think the coloring on this is seriously amazing. I never would have thought. Acetate? Really!

Tracy said...

Oh I've seen this beauty in bloggie land and it really is so very lovely. I think the Copic coloring looks amazing on the acetate and you've composed the card perfectly for her. :-)

What a doll! Great technique, and the addition of those sequins and gems is such a gorgeous, finishing detail!
