ACETATE CARD

Hello everyone;
I can't believe its Friday already and almost March to boot!! I was out in the yard today and was shocked to see little green tips of my lily of the valley pushing up through the soil. Yeeeees!! That is a sure sign of spring on its way. I can usually pick a couple of bouquets by the first or second week of May. Don't want to rush it....but I just love Spring!

This was my first attempt at an acetate card. I really like the look of them so I hope to do some more.
This image is a new one from Magenta, which is a Canadian stamp company.
First I stamped the image with white stazon ink and then stamped a little off the side of the white with black stazon ink. I used my nesties labels for the sentiment.
The butterfly stamp is from Stamp Barn. I stamped them also with black stazon onto the same dp as the sentiment and cut them out and layered them.
Once you know where you want the images its quite a quick and easy card.

Hope you like it.....and Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great Friday....

This is so beautiful-I love the effect of dimension that you achieved with the white and black stamping of the foliage- you can't tell what is a shadow and what is stamped.
