Ok, on with this weeks challenge which is being sponsored by
Digital Delights

and the prize is a $10 gift certificate to spend in their online store, great images to be had there everyone!We were lucky enough to be able to work with images from
Digital Delights.
This week we would like to see you use acetate on your project. This one got us all thinking, but we've all managed to come up with different things. So for a bit of inspiration, here's what we all came up with.
Jane embossed her acetate, coloured the flowers and placed it over her image. Jane used the Flowering Sweet Pea image.Lorraine used acetate as a window and used the Cow image.Tine made an acetate front for her card and used Merilee, Santa's Helper image.Karen made a acetate card front and used the Ginerbread House image.Sue made an acetate card front but added the chair to make a lovely fireside scene and use the Christmas Fireplace image.Ruth made a shaker card and used the Fairy image.Wynneth used the acetate to create a spotlight effect and used the Penny & her Teddy image.Kate used her acetate in an easel card and used the Sitting Penny image.Julies acetate is in the aperture and also holding the green plane in place so it's in the air and used 2 images, Sitting Honey Pot Larry and Bumble Bee Larry.So there you are, plenty of ideas for you for your projects. We are so looking forward to seeing what you do with your acetate.
