I'm doing two blue swaps, so I thought I'd better work on them today....... why am I always on the last minute???

These are both stamped, put through the Xyron so the adhesive's on the back, then Perfect Pearls Interference colours and gold were randomly brushed on. The stripy effect is a Xyron fault - for some reason it's not fully covering what's going through, but I like the way it turned out. Both pieces of acetate used exactly the same colours of Perfect Pearls, but the more colourful one is matted onto black, while the other one is matted onto white. The white one looks stunning in the bright light.

Been playing with acetate - quite novel - so we did some acetate Valentine's cards on Saturday - simple and perhaps a little too sweet?? I like the new Squiggly ink stamps, but acetate doesn't scan well!
