Monochromatic Sweet Pea Ching Chou Kuik's Fluttering Butterflies Acetate Card

Yay it's the weekend (well almost) and I can't wait! I'm off to The Craft Barn this weekend and am really looking forward to it! In case you haven't heard they have their extravaganza weekend where basically they take over the whole of Lingfield village with craft demos. The full line up can be found here.

So onto this weeks challenge over at Sweet Pea Stampers which is Monochromatic. We want to see creations using a single colour in lots of shades and tones. We are sponsored by the lovely Lynette from Sweet Pea Stamps who is offering a 3 count grab bag of stamps. If your wanting some inspiration, please stop by the rest of the DT's blogs where they have some amazing projects.

Anyway, here's my offering for the week.

I stamped Ching-Chou Kuik's Fluttering Butterflies onto smooth white cardstock. The image has been coloured with a range of Black and Grey Promarkers and then high-lighted with Stickles and Enamel Accents. I ran a sheet of acetate through an embossing folder to create the card base. The image was then mounted onto black card and attached to the acetate. I then attached matching black mounts the reverse of the image and inside and to the rear of the card. The eyelash fibre, flowers and butterfly were from my stash.

I hope you all have a great weekend, thanks as always for stopping by.
