Did They Say Acetate?

Posted by PicasaGood afternoon legionnaires. I'm here this afternoon with my challenge for the LIMeettes. If you read the challenge  here you will see that Mandi and Chrissie expected there to be groans. And that's just what I did as soon as I read the word "acetate". Don't quite why I'm scared of acetate, but I've never used it on cards. But knowing full well how this acetate might agitate more than a few of the LIMettes, they made it easier by allowing us to use acetate somehow with no fixed plan. Flowers came to my mind first and they gave us a sample using them, but since I was making some Easter treat boxes for my DD, I decided to incorporate a piece of acetate into it.

I used SU's window sheets. This is strong acetate that makes excellent strong windows. I had just purchased them recently, not really knowing what I'd do with them, but planning to search U-Tube.  Using it for this challenge was easy peasy. Just use a die to cut a scallop (could use a scallop punch, as the box is small), and adhere a piece of acetate over it. I stamped an image of a decorated egg onto the acetate with Stazon royal purple ink, but it is not showing up. I chose to photo outside and I have shadows going on too unfortunately, but you get the idea, right.

I really need to get brave and make a card with acetate too. After all, it's nothing to be frightened of, huh?

Great basket Erica... we lost a little white space on the way, but it's super nevertheless!
From this week onwards, acetate will be no longer feared by the LIMettes!
