Simon Says - Let's be clear! ...

Hi everyone,

Just want to share another card I made for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which this week is 'Lets be Clear'.

I decided I wanted to have a good play with my embossing pastes, and see what effects I could achieve when using them on acetate ( please see previous post for more samples).

And here's my entry...

I started with a top folding tent card, made from acetate, masked off and taped to my craft sheet.  I then used this gorgeous Memory Box 'Star' background stencil, and used a palette knife to cover in Dreamweaver white embossing paste, which is just the most amazing embossing paste, it's soft, creamy and a brilliant white, a pleasure to work with!

I cut the Lawn Fawn 'Speach bubble border die' from vellum and white heat embossed this gorgeous Mama Elephant sentiment from their awesome 'splendid' set.

I finished the card with a strip of striped silver glitter card from the DCWV glitter stack, and a few gorgeous sequins from doodlebug.  And there you have it....

Again, I was too wrapped up in creating to think about a space for a message, but when I send this out, I will add white card, die cut the same size as the speech bubble, and adhere this behind.

And here's another example of the same technique I thought I would share....

Such a fun technique with endless possibilities!

I really hope you like it.

Thanks for looking.
