LIM acetate: blowing bubbles




This week's challenge at the fabulous Less Is More is to use Acetate. I love acetate cards. I like how you can make things appear to float, so I thought it would be perfect for this elephant with bubbles from lili of the valley. I have embssed the corner with a fiskars embossing plate, glittered the bubbles with stickes and added a strip of paper along the bottom.

On the reverse of this there is a strip of white card (inside the card) so that you can write a (very small) message.

edit: I forgot to say the elepant and bubbles are coloured with coloursoft pencils onto white card, then cut out and glued to the card (a couple of people have asked)
