Good Morning all.
Today is a little card using die cut acetate poppies. After all my acetate cards i have lots of little offcuts so decided to try using them. Here i used alcohol ink to colour the acetate before die cutting.
I first die cut white card into an hexagon shaped base card and and smaller mat. To the smaller panel i very lightly stencilled a foliage background with oxide inks patina & pistachio. I inked the acetate pieces with alcohol inks, i then die cut just the poppy heads, as this is heavyweight acetate i used for base cards the die doesn't cut all the way through, but enough to easily finish cutting with scissors. I die cut the poppy again from a scrap of white card and coloured the stems with alcohol pens.
I decided where i wanted the poppy and then stamped the cat, sentiment & dragonfly with a ombre ink pad. I then glued on the poppy stem and added the acetate poppy heads on top with a little tacky pva
The oxide ink just lightly shows through the stamped cat which i like on this occasion. I made this in all that heat last week when i kept spraying water around the room to try and help keep the heat a bit more bearable. I only noticed later some had landed on my cat and given a speckled effect to it which makes me smile as my old cat likes to sit in front of my water spray to cool off too😁
Just a close up on the poppies. The colour on the poppies mostly hides the glue so its not as obvious as it would be on plain acetate. I didn't glue them on flat so that it has dimension.
