Acetate Card Challenge

Hope you all had a good weekend! I realize that it is Tuesday and not Monday, but one of the perks of being a free lancer is that you pretty much get to set your own schedule. So since my weekend was Sunday and Monday, today feels like Monday to me:-) Carmel was beautiful and it looks like we've found the spot for our reception. I still have a few more questions to ask the owner before we sign anything, but the place looks really cute and cozy, exactly what we wanted:-) And now for the challenge card I will be showing you today!



This challenge was made by Christie, our Prettie Mama:-), to make an acetate card. Being the ignorant newbie that I am, I of course had to call and ask her what in the world is acetate? When she told me all it was was those plastic sheets you use for an overhead projector I felt a little stupid. But that's one of the things I really like about stamping. A lot of the techniques that you see people use are actually pretty simple once you find out how it was done. For this card I used our set Rainy Day Friends. It's the only time I've been able to use it so far even though it's one of my favorite Sophia's! I stamped her little dog, Daisy, with her inside the card and stamped the rain drops on the acetate window. Here is the inside and a close up of the image.




Both Christie and I have little fluffy dogs so we decided Sophia's dog would be a combination of both of ours. Here is a picture of my little baby.



His name is Benji. He's very sweet to those he likes, but if not, watch out!;-) His little high pitch bark would scare anyone away! I never thought I would have a little dog, I always liked bigger dogs. But when I saw his little face, I couldn't resist:-)

I'll be back tomorrow to post the challenge that Jodi gave us, to make a 3x3 card. I've never made one of those, so it should be interesting;-) It's also my turn to post my challenge to all of the Prettie Girls, hope they like it!
