Playing With Acetate

Stampotique's current challenge is "bookmarks", and I know that no matter how many bookmarks I have, I can always do with some more... 





  For this particular one, I started with a piece of clear acetate, cut it into a tag shape, stamped Gooseneck & Prom Queen on the reverse using black StaZon ink, and when dry, I added white and purple acrylic paint.     Once that was dry, I added the image of Head (stamped onto scraps of painted wc paper), the (old Collections) cs scrabble tiles, covered with a coat of DM.    I added the left-over oval center piece of a Sizzix Alterations die (folded in the middle over a piece of painted text paper)      The button is from Craft Queen, and so is the seam binding.   I also used a Souffle pen to accentuate the whites of their eyes  : )   I hope you're having a creative weekend, thanks for stopping by.
