The theme for Week 11 at Less is More is "Acetate". Now this is one I like! A favourite technique of mine is to colour acetate with alcohol inks, to use either as a background or as an overlay. Here I've made an overlay for the Hero Arts Poppies.
I stamped the poppies on to white pearlescent card, which gives a lovely sheen to the picture through the acetate, although unfortunately it doesn't show up on the photo. The pearlescent card, being shiny, doesn't take ink very well, it tends to puddle a bit, so after it had dried I went over the solid black areas with a Promarker to make it nice and dense. I ran the card through my Xyron machine to put the adhesive on the right (picture) side, so that I could then stick the coloured acetate over the top, letting it overhang the picture a little so that when mounted on to the base card with foam pads you get a 3D effect.
To get the requisite white space, I mounted the picture on to an 8" x 8" card, and finished it off with a Darkroom Door sentiment.
Great challenge this week! I'm looking forward to seeing all the other entries.
And thanks for taking the time to visit. I hope you find something here to enjoy, maybe be inspired by and (occasionally) even be amused by! I've been crafting in one way or another for about as long as I can remember, and cardmaking for well over 25 years. I'm privileged to live in rural SW Scotland, where, as a nature lover, I have only to look out of the window for fresh inspiration.
I love getting comments, and each one is read and much appreciated. Hope to see you again soon!
