Embossed acetate

I've had a hectic week with teaching and preparation of samples for upcoming classes but I wanted to share this piece with you. It was a bit of an experiment to see whether or not acetate would turn white when it was embossed through the Cuttlebug. Well that's what I'd expected would happen, and I had some ideas on how I would use this in a project but, to my surprise, the embossed pattern on the acetate stayed clear. I could immediately see possibilities with alcohol inks and this is the result - a gorgeous tapestry look when the acetate was layered over a sheet of card from the Core'dinations Vintage Collection range. I'm really loving this look and can't wait to try out some more ideas.

If you'd like to learn how to create this look, I'll be teaching the technique in a class at Stamp Antics in July. Check out my website for more details.
