UMT # 41- Sparkle Hello

Welcome to my newest Using My Tools post. So for new friends and visitors Using My Tools posts are crafty creations where I pull something out of my stash that at one time, I thought I just "HAD" to have and finally use it. This time it's acetate. I watched a few titorials on how to make a card using acetate. Hmmm... that was over a year ago and at the time I bought up lots of acetate thinking I was going to make lots of acetate cards. Well, I finally decided to sit down and use that acetate. 

Here's my first attempt...

I used a large background stamp and Staz-on ink for the acetate.
I tried to add as much texture as I could. Here's a close up view of the details. 
I added various colored gems to the centers for demension and interest.

and...I embossed the sentiment square as well as inked it around the edges.

Hero Arts Sentiment
Hero Arts background stamp- Daisy Outline
Recollections gems
Hemp cord
Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge for the flowers
Cricut Embossing folder - Stitched Squares
MME 6x6 pad- Dolled up
