LIM 11, Acetate Number 2 :0)

Hi there, Happy Monday to you. We've had a warm sunny day, lots of flowers bursting into bloom and trees blossoming all over the place, anyone would think it was spring:0)

My lovely builders came today 3/4hr early, whoops, I wasn't quite ready for them but to be honest they told me 9.30am and turned up at the door at 8.45 a girl needs more leway than that, surely!!!! Any way I did grab some time away from making umpteen cups of tea and whilst they were busily banging and drilling away I had another attempt at an acetate card.

 Oh! my goodness, have I had fun! A lot of paper and card in the bin but my first and only die cut from the acetate went on the final  card. I think I was being a little ambitious, the Tim Holtz die is big, this card is nearly 5ins square and it virtually fills it. I tried all sorts of arrangements but ended up CAS, which is really what the challenge is all about at Less is More I have coloured the weathered clock face with Copics and glittered with Stickles.
The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps
I popped the die cut out by using gel glue and it sits quite proud of the card which is why there are shadows on the first pic.

I really love hearing from everyone and would like to thank you all for your brilliant support, it really does help to know there's someone out there, as keen/ loopy as me, TTFN :0)

Edited; I have tried many times to leave comments for Monika and now KatheD, I'm sad because it tells me I'm spam:{ Sorry Ladies and thank you so much for your comments:0) xxx

Make sure you get plenty of bags of sugar in for the workmen!!!

I do love this TH image. I've only got it as a mask and wonder whether I would use the die at all. You obviously did and to great effect. I love all the colours.

MC, you are a creative wonder. I bet you could use any kind of product and make it look amazing! I love this acetate clock card. The sentiment is perfectly placed. I'm wondering what adhesive you used 'cause I can't see it! Oh, and you aren't spam. I can attest to that. ;D
