Playing with Acetate

Hi everyone. I wanted to share a card I made for hubby's birthday.  I was inspired by Jennifer Mcguire to try my hand at playing with acetate and after watching her video, here is the card I came up with.

Acetate - Craft Plastic Sheets from Jo-Ann's
White cardstock - GinaK
Background stamp - Tropical Background - Hero Arts
stamped with StazOn Opaque White ink
Seahorse stamp and die - Hero Arts Layering Stamps
Ocean floor stamp - Great Impressions - Seaside Shells
Sentiment stamp - Cardz TV - Good Times
Teal Zeal Memento ink used for sponging

I really like the way it came out.  It was very difficult to photograph, but I think you get a good idea of what it looks like. I think that next time I need to choose a different colour combo for layering the large seahorse.  I think he's a little blah, but for the first try I think it came out okay and hubby liked it :-)

Thanks for stopping by today.

The color palette is naturally gorgeous and I just want to hug all of the sweet seahorsies. :o) Every visit to your blog is a sweet adventure, I must say.. always know how much I appreciate you and how much joy your work brings my heart. :o)
