Celebrating a Happy Birthday

Good morning dear friends.  Today I'm sharing a birthday card I made recently trying something new.  I have never actually stamped on acetate and coloured from behind using acrylic paints before making this card and was quite pleased with the finished result.

I first created a background using Distress Inks and stamped the 'Celebrate' sentiment at the bottom using Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I then stamped the acorn and leaves image by Studio 112 onto a piece of acetate using Green Stazon ink.  Once the ink was completely dry, I coloured the image from behind using acrylic paints.

The acetate was attached to the background using brads, then mounted onto a piece of orange cardstock before being adhered to the front of a C6 scalloped edge base card.  Finally I stamped the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment using the Rich Cocoa ink and a stamp from the SU! Sassy Salutations stamp set, underneath the image.

Here's a close up shot of the acetate layer

I hope you've enjoyed seeing today's project, thank you so much for taking the time to visit Stamping Grandma.

Have a great day.
