Polka Doodles Challenge - Acetate or Vellum

Happy Friday everyone, it's Polka Doodles time again and this week's challenge is to use Acetate or Vellum on your creation. I was rather pleased to see this as I think it's something that doesn't get used nearly enough and really made the creative juices flow.
i chose to use vellum as I wanted a soft look for my card.
 I printed the pretty daisy paper from the Love and Cherish CD on to pale yellow vellum and cut out a square which I stuck to a cream square trimmed with deckle edged scissors. I put the tape just across the centre.
I stuck this panel to a peach card blank and then added a border of lemon card trimmed with a Martha Stewart punch on both edges and a central peach strip embossed with the Cuttlebug daisy folder.
I printed the beautiful lace butterfly from the All Around & Everywhere CD on to pale blue vellum and mint green card, cut these out and layered them together. I added peach pearls to the body.
As a finishing touch, I coloured one of the greeting panels from the Back To Nature CD with a lemon Promarker to match it to the card and put this on a mat of peach card trimmed with deckle scissors.

The Letraset Aquamarker competition is still ongoing so if you haven't yet had a look to see what's on offer, just pop over to the challenge blog for all the details. i also think there might be another fab tutorial from Nikky so it's definitely a must to take a look.

  7. Hi Fliss

    I'm still on my mad catch up from my holidays, seems to be taking me forever. Mind you not helped by new puppy muts, not the brightest idea right on the back of our hols.

    Super work as always and great holiday pics, we went to Lake Bled a few years ago, beautiful.
