Jewelry Inspiration Challenge 19

Every week Stacey hosts a color challenge inspired by her love of jewelry. I always have good intentions to play along, but this is the first time I've actually participated. Sorry it took me so long, Stacey!

This week she chose this cute bracelet from Moonraker Lampwerks, and we were to use Real Red, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, and Whisper White.

I made this quick card, which I can use for a Valentine or a "just because" card.

After seeing this butterfly on Elizabeth's blog, I figured I'd do the same, so I embossed my acetate heart with Swiss Dots. I think it adds a lot of interest to the card, and it's something I want to play with again in the future.
Stamps: Best Yet (SU)
Paper: Pink Pirouette textured, Certainly Celery, PTI white
Ink: Real Red
Accessories: Heidi Swapp ghost shape, flower (unknown), brad (Making Memories), Cuttlebug Swiss Dots

Hi Ann...Returning the favour! Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Have you tried alcohol inks with your acetate befor embossing? Or PearlEx...now that turns uo really nice too! Love to work wioth acetate but these two ways of colouring do give it a complete new dimension!

Email me if you have not or do not know how to try these out...of course, if you are interested!
