Just Us Girls #54 - Technique Challenge

Hi everyone! I'm back with another Just Us Girls challenge. This week is a technique challenge, and I've chosen to challenge everyone to use acetate on their cards. You could make a clear card, use it as an accent, or use one of the techniques in the Resources section of Splitcoast Stampers that use acetate. I've chosen to make a clear card for mine. I used a piece of acetate as the base of my card. It's just the stuff you can put through your printer to make a transparency. The image, purple cardstock, and dp are from Paper Makeup Stamps October Kit. I punched out a string of bats (the kit comes with ribbon that are purple bats, but it's white on the other side, and you would see that on the inside of the card, so I punched them in black instead) and lined them up on either side of the dp. The kit also comes with green liquid pearls. I decided to use it to make a border around the perimeter of the card to define it more. I also added star dust stickles to the wings. Here's a picture of what's included in the kit.
You can see more examples of this kit on the PMS blog. The JUGs team has some great uses of acetate, too! So please stop by the JUGs blog to see what they've done!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoy your Columbus Day weekend! Stop by tomorrow when I'll have a review card for the October Paper Makeup Stamps new release.

Absolutely fabulous Lisa - totally adorable - love that you made the entire card clear and then accented it. I need to get some of those liquid pearls - I love how you created a border with them. Great challenge this week!

Thank you Lisa--for real....I did something w/o seeing something that someone else did???? I made a card w/o stamp lifting? LOL. Thanks for your uplifting comment on my acrylic flower card.
