Fashion statement!!

Well another lovely sunny day and...not my usual and I can tell you ...never again!! I wanted to try the Less is More challenge and this week it's acetate...piece of cake I thought!! That stuff just has a mind of its own...aaarrgggg!! It won't cut and everything sticks to it including the rubber stamps I used on this one...I had to peel the stamps from the acetate...I thought what's going on here...I thought it was ink I used not glue!! I was not going to let this one beat me so 6 sheets of acetate we are. I embossed a white panel and layered it onto the black and added pink seam binding and a little message. I layered the acetate on to sticky fixers so that it gives a 3d effect and actually IRL this does look quite good as you can see the shadows behind the figures...not sure if you can see it in the photo. The stamps I just love...these were a win I got in the early days, they are called My Acrylix - Every Day Life...great for quick cards although this one wasn't quick hence the reason I have not said a wee quickie before lunch!!
