Isn't it funny, that when you are really pleased with something you've made and you know it looks incredible in real life, you proudly take a photo and add it to your blog, then you're on pins waiting for everyone else to recognise how wonderful the item is....and you wait.....and you wait.....and you wait. Ha ha! I think this may be one of those items for me. I LOVE this completely acetate box and it does look incredible, but it is SO HARD TO PHOTO so people probably won't comment on it. Never mind.
I do have a little CAS card to go with it with another of the acetate flowers I made on it.
This was made without any challenges in mind, apart from looking back at the Colour Create ones that I missed making a DT item for recently. So, I've scrabbled around and come up with the following challenges that'll fit these items.
Fairytale Challenge Everything BUT a card - so I'm only entering the box into that one.
Fun with shapes Sparkle and something punched or die cut (the flowers are die cut)
Fresh Brewed - Anything But a card (The Box ONLY is entered)
Delicious Doodles - Lovely Lace
Finally Off The Wall Craftiness - Who had the picture below for inspiration and the colours are blue, brown and white.
Hope you don't mind the little bit of pink to represent the flesh in the inspiration.
Okay, now for the confession. I punched the leaves using a normal lever punch....big mistake! I almost (but not quite) broke it! So, take it from me; it's not a good idea to use a punch for acetate.
Tha picure below will hopefully show all the glitz that the stickles I added to the acetate flowers and leaves brin. They really do look fab and well worth the wait for the glitter glue to dry.
Well, thank you once again for looking. I do hope this has inspired someone to make something really amazing with acetate.
