Techniquein' Wednesday


Today I have a first to share with you. Its an acetate/transparency card inspired from Monday's SCS Technique Challenge. I have always seen these cards in the gallery and thought I need to try one so yesterday I did and I liked it! I used the new acrylic The Cat's Pajamas savvy stamps for the card. I love the little polar bear!! He is adorable. I stamped him on Kraft paper and colored him in with my prisma colors. I added some stickles to look like snow and did some faux stitching around the edges. The swirls were stamped using SU Craft Whisper White and the sentiment is stamped with black Stazon. The ribbon is May Arts and the letter "C" is from Paper Studio. Card stock used is SU Sky Blue and Bayou Blue. Stay tuned for some Halloween cards tomorrow :)

I love this card, its like you set this winter image on a ice card. I confess that I have seen these cards done by other and have wanted to try it but have not yet done it. Now you've inspired me to get my butt into gear!

This is wonderful, Ana! Knut looks even colder floating on an acetate card. I think I will give this a try.

i love those cards with the acetate, where do you find them, are they accessable in AC Moores or Michaels, because right now going thru SU is not an option at this point.

Love this look Ana. I am going

Quite a different point of view on
your basic card.
