Share The Love Week- Transparent Challenge
Welcome back to more of the ‘Share The Love’ week with the two fabulous companies- Ellen Hutson and Winnie & Walter. Today’s challenge is ‘Transparent’ and it’s all about play on the word. You probably will know (If you’ve hung around this blog for any length of time) that I love acetate and vellum and so decided to create a couple of projects celebrating the theme.
I’ve used a patterned acetate base, tent folded and then die cut the Cover Model: Leaf Effect Cutaway
Ellen Hutson generously sent us two products to combine with Winnie & Walter products; the first I’ve used; ‘Totally Awesome’ by Julie Ebersole.
which I’ve stamped onto acetate with white Stazon, and then trimmed down to create individual words. I attached them onto some coloured strips of card with brads and then glued them onto the acetate base.
The second project I’ve created is using the transparency to act as a see-through base to add elements onto to act as though they’re hanging mid-air.
I die cut a circle from a tent folded blank and then drew two diagonal lines in the centre of the circle and cut them out with a craft knife. I then added some acetate behind the gap and adhered it all together.
I’ve also used the Brushstroke Wonderful die
and combined it with the Winnie & Walter set I never get tired of; In Bloom; Elsa’s Flora
You can see the acetate stamped part; it’s such a challenge to attach them. I’ve adhered the ‘wonderful’ together twice and then to the acetate sentiment. By seeing where the small bits of the die-cut are touching, you can add adhesive behind those small parts and then the glue is disguised.
Hope these have inspired you a little to join in with the transparent challenge. There’s a different challenge each day this week. Do have a look and try to join in with the challenges over on the Winnie & Walter blog ;– there are prizes too! 2 random commenters from the Share the Love Week posts on the w&w blog will receive the stamp set and die from Ellen Hutson I’ve used here (thank you Ellen!).
Each day 1 randomly drawn participant will receive a $25 credit to Ellen Hutson AND a $25 credit to the W&W shop.
See you soon xx
