LIM Week 11 Acetate




This was hard!.... it bugged me... why oh why did I come up with this idea?..... after several attempts here it is....  Silver fairy dancing in the flowers.
 I wont go into why it became difficult,  suffice it to say keeping it LIM ... unable to hide things, glue! having to use ribbon in the end... :o)
This was supposed to be a quick card!
The card is embossed with a Cuttlebug the acetate is heat embossed and made into a wrap around the card. i.e. two layers
THEN... photography!!!!... what a  ******  *****!!  fill with which ever expletive you like LOL
eventually took photos outside after failing.... several times indoors.

Added 20th April
Hi again folks,  I took a new photograph, following Monica's kind advise.  I think it's an improvement
thank you Monica xx

 My skills improve continuously with the hints, tips, tutorials and helpful advise from this friendly LIMette community. TFS xx


and this is the one that got away.

It is a bit breezy out there :o)

Chrissie said...

This is super Suzi!
I agree that photographing acetate is difficult, but it looks really good.
Is the dry embossing heat embossed? or is it 2 layers?
Great job!

Susan said...

I love the depth you got from the embossing! I think we all had difficulty photographing our creations!

Monika said...

"... photographing acetate is difficult"

I don't know which camera you have. I have a pentax.

"ISO 3200", no flash, a strong lamp on the left or right side of the card - and you got it ;)

Wow what a gorgeous card you made! Love the whole idea

Susan Allan said...

What you have done is so clever Suzi. It is really beautiful and technically really difficult...how fabulous!!!
Worth all the effort!

Suzi, thank you for your lovely camping story. Sounds as if you found a magical location.
Red wine and shooting stars...how memorable.

I am not sure where I am going yet; the magical places are usually a long way from home.
Rain on the roof....lovely!!!!!!!!!

Love your fairy and the embossing behind. It's difficult when you get an idea in your head and can't let it go but this has worked out perfectly. x

Vicky Hayes said...

This is absolutely beautiful. It reminds me of an art nouveau pewter vase that we used to have when I was a child. I'm so pleased you overcame your photographic challenges to share this!

Debgem said...

This really made me smile! I think photographing the acetate is almost as tough as the challenge itself. However, I think you've made a lovely card - the fairy looks fabulous!

Carol said...

Beautiful card! Love that fairy...it can be so difficult to stamp on that slick surface, but your image looks perfect! So crisp and clean!

sasa said...

beautiful textures and shades - the image is perfect...
