Birds

Evening Lovelies, I hope everyone has managed to be safe and free from the floods! Hate to say this but been quite nice here, couple of light showers but over all warm and sunny! 
Tonight's make I am entering into http://creationsbygillm.blogspot.co.uk/ the theme is to use acetate, not easy for me! So I made A4 card blank with centura pearl, I created a sleeve by embossing acetate with A4 leaf mask, and using alcohol inks in blue, yellow and green, unfortunately the leaves don't show up so well in the photo, I created the topper blending pan pastels which I just randomly splodged on, Hansa yellow, orange, turquoise and turquoise tint, sealed with cheap hairspray and stamped using stazon black ink some stamps from a set I got from The Range can't remember the make, then I inked the edges with black soot DI, I had some die cut black flourishes knocking around forever, I attached the sleeve with thin red line tape at the back close to crease, I used eyelets and ribbon to create a bit of interest in the corners! Hope you like it? It's different for me not sure I like it? Thank you for visiting my blog today xxx
