Acetate Bookmark

I've been experimenting with my Cuttlebug seeing how different materials emboss - what fun :) So here is how it looks embossing acetate. I've made a bookmark for the challenge on This Thursday, It's All About.... which is looking at making things that have uses. I also took the opportunity to use a fab stamp I have from Inkadinkado of an angel image and Lots To Do has an Angel theme this week so of course I had to enter :)

The image was stamped with Stazon onto acetate that I had tinted with alcohol inks. I then coloured the image on the back with Cosmic Shimmer powders mixed with 3D-glue. The image was then placed on white paper and cut out to be stuck onto the embossed acetate.

Stamp - Inkadinkado
Colouring - Alcohol inks stream and butterscotch; Cosmic Shimmer
Equipment - Cuttlebug and script embossing folder
Other - 3D-Glue; White paper

Thank you Tracey and those at This Thursday, It's All About...... for sampling me again, it is a real honour :)
