I loved the look of all the Indigo Blu stamps but there was no way they would have made it to Australia in time to use them for the challenge so that left the Anything Goes Challenge.
I decided to stick with using stamps and made use of a new one I had received from Viva Las Vegas Stamps. My project was an Artist Trading Card using the theme of lighthouses and needed to incorporate acetate in some way. This project was also for a swap group I am in.
I began by stamping the image onto cream cardstock using brown Memento ink. I then inked around the edge with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
Next, I used brown, blue and green alcohol ink and swirled it over the acetate sheet to create 'waves'. Once dry, I cut the acetate down to size and attached a piece to the stamped image using my Tiny Attacher- one of my favourite little tools!!
The card still needed something and so I added a diamante light and created beams using blue metallic thread. The final touch was a little silver gilding wax around the edges.
