Creative Inspirations Paints Challenge-Acetate

Team A of the Creative Inspirations Paints challenge this week is to use Acetate on our project along with Creative Inspirations Paints.  I decided to make a gift set for a gentleman that fixed my lawnmower last week while my husband was out of town……..
I made 6 cards, 3 of each layout and put them in an acetate holder from CDS with an acetate tag on the front.

The tag is backed up with a piece of CS with a Technique Junkies technique called Twinkling Faux Stenciling in light blue and silver Twinkling H2O’s. 
The shimmer is awesome and very difficult to photograph! 
Stamps are Clear Dollar Stamps-Yard Yabber stamped with Black Stazon
CI Paints- Antique Silver, Tan, Coal, Garnet, Green Olive
I am a little OCD, I sorted my Su paper and tried to use the new colors- Soft Suede, Real Red and Blue Bayou. The layout is a CASE from a SU mini catalog.
I colored the image with Copic markers C1, C2, C3, C5, G21, G24, G94, R24, R27
HERE is a link to the Creative Inspirations Challenge Blog where all of the DT samples are posted- check back next Thursday for Team B’s projects.

I"ve been a member of TJ for several months now and still have played with one single technique
:(. Maybe after the move. What a sweet thing for your to do for him. That acetate tag is really cool and I'm just wondering did you put the paint on the front or back of the acetate? It looks awesome!
