Holidays: Artistic Stamper Challenge
I made an acetate card. To make the card, I simply folded and cut out a square(ish) card from a sheet of acetate. I used up the scraps to stamp out the film strip stamp. on the reverse side (the side i didnt stamp on) I coloured the film strip with a light touch of "alcohol Ink". I used butterscotch and rust. I also used a punch, to punch out the holes along the edge of the film strip.
As you cant write on an acetate card unless you add an insert, (and that detracts from the point of using the acetate) then i decided to make a tag to write my greeting on. I made another acetate filmstrip and attached it to the inside like a pocket. I stamped and inked my tag and slipped it inside.
It was very simple to do, but quite effective I think.
Please do go over to the Creative team blog and see what the rest of the creative team have come up with for the "holiday" theme. probably based on more of a longing than fact. here's hoping we get much more sunshine next summer. And please consider taking part too.
