Less Is More Acetate :/

I work every Saturday and round about 11.30am I can be found in the staffroom on my break trying to find out what the new LIM challenge is. Last Saturday you may have even heard a little groan when the post came up on my phone and said "Acetate".

I have totally racked my brain as what to do for this challenge knowing that somewhere deep in and amongst all my stash there was a wad of acetate that I bought years ago then never actually used (as per usual!)

I then remembered I had bought some 'Mini Me World' Forever Friends stickers from The Range that are sort of like acetate and decided I could use them both.

It has taken three attempts, two attempts chucked out after they went wrong but this one will have to do lol as I'm yet to start my assignments as Iv been too busy playing!!!
So I used my circle nesties and made an aperture card. I cut out a circle of acetate and attached it to the inside of the card blank and very carefully stuck on my little bear. 
A little close up of the little bear. He looks like he's floating from afar!

I used the little stickers that came on the sheet to decorate around the outside to give it a bit of colour and hand stamped the greeting directly onto the finished card (I found my fine liner pen woop woop so am much more confident at doing this!!)

I'm glad I have made this even though Im not very keen on it as I may have found a use for all the acetate I have lol . I bought a few of those stickers so have plenty of different designs to use!

                 Right so I MUST start these assignments!! I'm sure Ill be back soon though lol!

  8. Fab card, Rach- acetate also freaked me out and sent me into a similar spin trying to rememeber where my only-once-before-used pack might be but I think you've picked a great combination with it and that type of sticker :) Greeting looks perfect, too!! :)
