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.

Materials:
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 🙂

Linked over at the Bookmark Collector (thanks, guys) – have a look it is an interesting site of different bookmarks.
