Damask & Brocade

****  WINNER  ****
at STAMPTACULAR CHALLENGE

****************************************************************************************

Sorry, I have not been around lately and it seems that I am struggling to make even one card per week although there are so many wonderful challenges out there. 

Today's card is stamping on acetate with Staz On Teal Blue with HA Large Fabric Design.  The second layer is white heat embossed with HA Newspaper Background and the sentiment is from SU Sincere Salutations.  The acetate layer is not completely glued to the second layer as I wanted it to have the "window" look for the sentiment.  As for the ribbon, I made several loops from one end to another (sorry, not very good at explaining this) to create the number of layers required.

I am submitting this card to the following challenges : Hero Arts, Moxie Fab World, Stamptacular, Simon Says Stamps

Thank you for stopping by!

Lai-Yoke you are a master at working with acetate! Wonderfully incorporated window and the accents are terrific too!

So gorgeous, Lai-Yoke! I love the colour, and seriously, you have the most amazing ideas with acetate - every time you use it I "ooh and aah" over it! It's too bad that your mojo isn't keeping up, but it will be back. Hopefully the weather is nice so that at least you can enjoy some time outside :)
