Peony and Acetate

Hello friends.  Glad you stopped by!



When we did our acetate challenge at CAS Mix Up in March,
I saw some cards where the acetate had been dry embossed.

I loved the look!

So this was a perfect opportunity to try it myself.

It was so easy and I used a piece of acetate from a stamp set.
No additional purchase required!

I found this peony in my UFO box.  It had been embossed and colored.
I have no recollection of what I used to color it.  Sorry.
I do know that water was involved.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

A new idea for me...embossing acetate. Your choice of that EF and using it on acetate creates such a good look to set off the beautiful flower.

This is the first time I've seen this done and I love it! How cool that looks. You did a fabulous job watercoloring your peony too. I'm going to have to try this for sure! Thanks for the idea!
