Two mediums I enjoy you can imagine my delight with this week's Less is More Theme, Acetate or Vellum.
The Acetate card is an old report cover, I 'rescued' a lot of these when working and bound files were being shredded. So base card sorted. The Vellum is years old, back in the days when the shopping channels really did bring us things that were new and different not to mention affordable. I suspect this was something from that Dawn B introduced us to here in the UK but I might be wrong. The kit came with A5 vellum sheets in various colours that had colour fade pattens, these were match by coated card in the same colours and designs. The card being coated looks fantastic but is no use at all for stamping but the vellums continue to be great stash items. I've used 3 different vellum papers to die cut the butterfly, die cuts attached to Acetate with Glossy Accents on the body. White paper diecut stuck inside for any message, job done.
Had to wait until today to make this as yesterday was all about making bracelets. I spent a lot of time opening and closing jump rings to make that charm bracelet mentioned the other day.
Also had to thread this bracelet, having seen the pattern in the Jewellery Maker magazine it is something I really wanted to construct. The blue green stones are Lapis Lazuli, the jump rings and findings are silver plate.
Both bracelets fit nicely and have that wonderful drape and dangle that I love.
