For the Love of Stamps Enjoy the Journey stamp set acetate card

Hi crafters

Sharing a simple acetate card using the new biplane stamp set launched  by For The Love of Stamps By

I cut off the front of the card blank leaving a small strip at the top, before attaching  acetate behind.  I then attached another strip of card at the base of the acetate panel. 
The biplanes were stamped and heat embossed onto heat resistant acetate, then set to one side
The stamps were used to add effect to the card strips at the top and bottom of the card blank, using distress inks and a water brush, to give a watercolour effect.
I cut some of the paper from a Background Paper Pad to the size of the card blank, then stamped  the clouds randomly, in a coordinating ink. This was glued to the inside of the card blank.
The acetate planes were attached across the acetate panel to complete. 
Thanks for stopping by.. would love to read yr comments.

  3. What colors of embossing powder did you use. It has dark flecks which make it look aged or antiqued

  4. Hi. It's a Stampendous Frantage embossing powder. It's chunky and had gold and metallic flakes in it xx
