Season's Greetings on Acetate

Thanks to Jennifer McGuire I was inspired to try something with acetate, just something very simple really, but I like the look of it.

Paper: PTI
Stamps: PTI, Hero Arts
Ink: Stazon, Peeled Paint Distress Ink, Brilliance White
Other: Acetate, Brads, Pearlized Water, PTI Die

The base card is Kraft cardstock.  The strip of red cardstock at the bottom was stamped using white ink and stamps from Papertrey Inks' Embellishment set.

The centre piece was created by die cutting a piece of white cardstock, rubbing the Peeled Paint ink pad right over the paper and letting that dry.  Then I used the Hero Arts Swirl background stamp, spritzed it with pearlized water and stamped, (no ink), the green centre piece.  I dried that with my heat tool.

Here is a close up of the centre panel (apologies if it is a little out of focus).

I then also die cut the same shape in acetate, stamped the greeting from a Hero Arts set using Stazon and added the two silver brads.  The centre panel was then adhered using dimensional dots.

Not difficult, one must just have a steady hand when stamping on acetate.

Thank you for looking.
