It's Kel's turn to set the dare for this Weeks Daring Cardmakers Dare and what a fab one it is! To use Acetate, vellum or something clear and see through ish, fantastic. I left it very late this week, I had plans to do it last night after work but then just ended up flopping on the sofa instead. Luckily I woke up at 5.30 am (so very unlike me!) with an idea and got the sewing machine out to try and sew quietly, totally impossible but I think I may have just got away with it. It could have been worse, my other idea involved hundreds of eyelets!
I used printable acetate, the stuff which has a slightly rougher side and is much easier to stamp on, my Autumn Leaves Swirl stamps and Brilliance white ink. I then sewed it onto a plain black textured card, added ribbon, Dunhelm bloom in black and some ickle tags on the sides. The greeting in the middle is another one of those fantastic cuttlebug embossing folders, inked to make it stand out. I'm quite pleased with the overall effect, I like the contrast between the shiny and the matt. The cards this week on the DCM blog are amazing and all so different and its great to see that loads of you are joining in and sharing your creations. Forgive me I haven't had time to go and look round all the blogs yet but I hope to catch up very soon.
