Little Tangles Challenge #37 - Peek a Boo!

16 May 2014




There were some fantastic cards last week for the peach & mint challenge, so many stunning creations.  This week it is acetate time.  I decided to use the acetate to make a shaker card, I'm a little behind on this trend, it's my first shaker card, and it shows!  I should have stuck to a square window or something like that but I went with the circle and had to hand cut it out around the flowers as they are on the same layer, not adhered separately.  The more I tried to 'fix' my circle the more I saw issues, so I had to stop or I wouldn't have had a card left, lol.  

I did some water colouring on the panel behind the acetate, it looked better on the larger piece I painted as you don't really get the effect in the smaller circle but I still think it's pretty.  And of course I used some of the beautiful Neat and Tangled sequins to shake around.  I thought the flowers looked a bit  bare left plain so I added a bit of colour to them but had to be careful as it's normal card stock they are on and I was using Inktense pencils on them.  I should have used my Prisma colour pencils in hindsight I think that would have looked better, I forget about them, they are sadly under used.

Well enough moaning about my card, I still like it, it's just not finished off the way I would have liked it.

I must say I seem to use the Fresh Blooms set a lot, I can't help it, I love it!
