It's Beautiful Acetate

I did this card for Abi's Funky Friday challenge#22, we needed to use Taken with Teal, Tempting Turquoise, Creamy Caramel, Night of Navy & Garden Green. This was very tricky for me as I only had the Night of Navy ink & a tag shape of Tempting Turquoise!

This picture doesn't show the technique very well, but I stamped the acetate with versamark ink using the It's Beautiful roller & then used clear embossing powder. The trick for heat embossing acetate is to use a low heat setting & keep the heat tool a good distance from the acetate, this way it shouldn't buckle. It takes longer but the effect is worth it!

I used:
Cardstock in Taken with Teal, Tempting Turquoise, Creamy Caramel, Nicht of Navy & Garden Green
Stampin' Up! ink in Night of Navy
It's Beautiful stamp roller
One of a Kind & Playful Petals stamp sets
Acetate (heat resistant)
Versamark ink
Clear Embossing powder
Scallop Edge, Scallop Oval, Oval, Scallop Circle & 1 3/8" Circle punches
Cutter Kit
Teal green sticky gems

Thanks for looking,
