With Thanks

Welcome to the first Tuesday of May.

Time for inspiration Tuesday over at Craft-Dee BowZ. 
The May challenge at CDB has started and runs thru the end of the month. 
We hope you enter and you could be the next winner. 
The theme is always Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow. 

The May sponsor is Cute As A Button and the prize is 2 black and white images. 

On April 30,  I posted about a card using acrylic, printable acrylic.
 I printed a digital image onto the printable acrylic. 
That image was pre-colored and it turned out great. 
Check out that post here.

Well for this card, I decided to use a stamped image instead of a digital image.
 I also wanted to test out the alcohol markers and regular markers in coloring the image.

I think it really turned out great.

The image had a lot of open areas that needed to be colored. Perfect for my test. 

I stamped the image on the rough side, using black Staz-On, the side you would print on. I also colored the image on that rough side, I used alcohol markers and some distress markers. 
Both worked great.

Once done with the  coloring, I attached some glitter film to the back of that acetate, 
making sure I attached the glitter to the rough side. 
Next I added a white cardstock piece to the back so the image and the glitter really show up.

I added some gold strips to the sides and a bow and I mounted that on a creamy yellow card base. 
And my card is finished.

I really love working with the printable acrylic sheets.
Hope you will try using them as well.
