Craft Stamper - Take Make It Challenge Four

Hi everyone, back again today with my project for the Craft Stamper Blog's 'Take it, make it Challenge number four and this time our challenge is taken from Kim Costello's beautiful acetate article on page 46 of the current issue (September) of the magazine.

The prize on offer for the winner of the challenge apart from being published in the magazine is a gift voucher from  a sprinkle of imagination.

 I love Kim's takes on acetate, she always has such imaginative ideas so I enjoyed finding a way to use some acetate that was part of some packaging on a die which I'd saved. I used my Sizzex Tim Holtz Bigz pillow box die to cut the acetate and then I inked it all over with alcohol inks, stamped with a Kaiserkraft texture stamp and decorated with Cheery Lynn build a flower and butterfly dies, lace, twine and pearl pen pearls.

Hope you'll join us in the challenge :)!

Love the depth of colour you have achieved with the inks, Chris. That sets the colour of your flower off perfectly.

This is pretty with the alcohol inks. Love your flower too. I saw videos on alcohol ink dreamscaping I bet you would be excellent at that. I am thinking about trying it?

The acetate looks so beautiful in those deep mysterious alcohol ink colours. Gorgeous, Chris. Sorry to be behind - my internet's been playing up, so I'm sitting in Caffe Nero trying to do some catching up... have a great weekend!
