plastic spotlight acetate crafty cardmakers

Welcome back to our Spotlight Challenge where we focus on a technique, style or product and before we get onto it we'd like to say a big thank you for your spotlight water entires and thank you to Handy Hippo for sponsoring! Our regular challenge is still running until next week and that is Hearts and today on our spotlight we're gong to look at Judie's choice of PLASTIC so you must use plastic somewhere on your creation be that Acetate, friendly plastic, shrink plastic, sweet wrappers etc. It doesn't have to be a card, we're not fussy here so whatever you fancy creating so long as it fits the theme :)

Vixs has a little giveaway for the winner which is 8 x A4 sheets of shrink plastic for you to have fun with (2 each of black, white, translucent and clear) have a look on CCM

Onwards to the challenge

i have used acetate and peeloffs backed with gold leaf made the 2 cards just to show that with a magic sheet you can use up the waste from your project to make a lovely new project. i took the acetate and a applied peeloffs to front and then placed double sided sheet on the back and dipped in mixed goldleaf to form the background colour then just added some ribbon and bird die cuts hope you like them come and join us at CCM
