Acetate flowers

Hello again,

I am still on holidays, so I have been in crafty heaven (hence the number of posts!)

I have another card to share with you after playing around with my Upsy Daisy die from Die-namics. This time using acetate. Yep – that flower is made from acetate! I coloured it with some pigment ink that I found at my local art shop – I would have used alcohol inks if I owned them, but I don’t, so I went looking for a substitute. I was surprised at the things I found that could be used to colour acetate.

The flower has 3 layers to it and I used my heat gun to shape the flowers to give them some dimension.

I am entering this into the Lilypads Flower Challenge sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.
