Then decided to have a go after seeing a demo on Saturday. I tried to be more careful this time with the acrylic paint on the embossed acetate. Have to say I was quite pleased with this one as it looks much cleaner and certainly more pronounced. Also stayed with the theme of using colours which aren't reds, dirty pinks and black - still kept the gold though!
Do I like the card? Mmm not sure but I do like certain aspects. Still can't stamp straight though!

2. After, on the debossed side (Where all the dips are),brush on chosen colour of
3. Swipe over with a roll of kitchen paper to remove excess paint. I use a baby wipe as
well around the edge of the painted areas to get as much off as possible.
4. When it's all dry you can use your fingernail to scratch off any remaining paint and
then I buff it up with a cotton wool pad to remove finger prints and any other bits
