Acetate & Tissue World Map


Here's another Acetate and Tissue card.



Finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"


You can see how by changing the colors a bit you can get a whole different feel. For directions on this technique check week one's post. I left the glitter step off for a more antique-y feel.

The layout is very simple. The cardfront is black, then a layer of antique gold shimmer cs, then textured green with black ink sponged on the edges. I wrapped some black Magic Mesh around both corners - MM is self adhesive but not so sticky that you can't move it around. Over this is a black cs layer, then the acetate panel which I backed with white because it was too muddy otherwise. The image is by Inkadinkado.

IRL the blue in the ribbon matches the main image panel colors fine, but not so much in the scan. I'm not sure where I got the ship charm, but it was silvertone so I rubbed some gold metallic Rub-Ons onto it so it blended better. Under the ship is just a scrap of the same green cs as the layer, cut into tag shape, and edged with Brilliance Galaxy Gold. The word is from a travel quote by PSX.

Thanks for looking!
