Acetate Technique & OCC sketch

***Click on the picture. The grapes are not this dark and it is much more glittery IRL ***


I used this sketch from today's OCC Challenge. I stamped the image with Stazon, then painted the opposite side with Lumiere paints. I matched the painted image to some DCWV Once Upon A Time glitter stack (the two smaller rectangles). I found a scrap of eggplant card stock in my scrap bag for the base layer, then mounted on an ivory ValuePack card from Michael's. I added the ribbon using the technique I learned from Leslie here.

Don't forget the party over at Cuttlebug Challenges starting tomorrow! Read more about it here.

Fabulous, fabulous what else can I say? This is a simply elegant card. You make it look so easy, but it is obvious it comes with a high level of difficulty.
