SLM 11- Acetate

I missed last week's SLiM challenge, and papercrafting, in general; shouldn't complain as we went for a fabulous family holiday in Eden - a spectacular part of NSW, Australia.  I did manage to read heaps, pick up knitting AND spend quality time with my husband and 2 girls.

Not even back 48 hrs, I feel a bit rusty and not altogether happy with my entry to this week's challenge using acetate.  Still, here it is.  While there are several embellishments, I think there's still enough whitespace for this to be CAS.  Please let me know if not.

I had lots of misses with using Stazon on the acetate -  too black, smudged, missed bits, etc. In the end I settled for just a small panel with the biggest 'clear' space AND stamped the lamp stand in burnished gold. The colour seeping through is from underneath, i.e. I didn't colour the acetate itself - so not quite the stained glass replica but near enough.

The lamp shade is lifted up with dimensionals and I applied glossy accents on the 'lead' bits.

The lamp stamp is from My Minds Eye and the sentiment is from an Inkadinkadoo set I think.

If I get inspired, I might have another go but I think I'd rather go visiting everyone else's work.
