Seeing Clearly

The Timeless Tuesday challenge this week at Flourishes is to use acetate.


I had all sorts of grand plans, and then I discovered that my Staz-On was completely dried up. I'm not talking a little dry, I'm talking bone dry. Not a smidge of ink to be had. Well. I tested some Memento ink just to see, and nope. Well. Harumph. I modified my plans, deciding to do a popped-up panel. I'm not going to step-by-step the rest of the UGH moments that happened during  the making of this card, but let's just say I love the end result, and it was a hard-fought battle. LOL!

Supplies: Flourishes stamp set - Hearts and Flowers; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Mustard Seed Distress ink; Spectrum Noir markers; black rhinestones, black & white seam binding; acetate; classic small oval Nesties

The sentiment and single daisy heart are stamped on the card base. The acetate was adhered at the edges with foam tape, and the top stamped panel adhered directly to the acetate. I stamped the same daisy heart all around the top panel, trying not to overlap in too many places, and then trimmed it down to size. I think this would make a lovely sentiment for a wedding card! 

OK, I suppose that's enough to share with you for one day ;) I'll be back tomorrow with lots more to share!

The yellow flowers stamped with the sentiment is really elegant. It is a very pretty card.

But with a wonderful result!! I love how there's mostly only black on white flowers and then finished with the yellow hearts!! Looks so pretty and original!!
Hugs, Wendy

Gorgeous! I reckon my staz on would probably be dry, I hardly ever use it... but sometimes absolutely nothing else will do lol.

Fantastic job on using this stamp set so creatively to cover the entire front! Lovely result! I bet my StazOn is dry too as well as dusty!
Thanks for playing along with FTTC!
