Lots to do - Acetate

Lots to do challenge this week is to use Acetate, once again something right up my street! Love Sam's off beat ideas that send you off in different directions.

The acetate topper was something i've had hanging around for a week or two, cut it on the cuttlebug using nestablilites for the first time. Coloured it with alochol inks but it did'nt work out for the project then. just perfect for this weeks challenge. The fish has been stencilled with transparent paste that was covered with glitter. Once dry a layer of crackle paste was spread over the top, the cracks are quite fine so the glitter did not show through but if you wondered it works and the fish is covered in fine cracks! This fish was then coloured with red alochol ink.

A 4" x 4" card has been covered with a metal square. Picked up the metal working tools on Friday do had to play. Another fish has been embossed onto the metal from a stencil, the rest of the sheet has been embossed with a dimple like patten and then the whole coloured with more alochol ink and attached to the card. Just to make sure the acetate was secure it has been stuck onto the metal with silicone glue dots and then in belt and braces manner two eyelets.

Very much a opportunity to play with new toys an experiment with different ideas, thanks Sam.
