Acetate.. The sheer thought frightens me!

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.

A huge 'hello' to some new followers, thank you for joining me.

Today's card is for the following blog challenges:

Totally Papercrafts ~ Use Acetate.
Meljen's Designs ~ Challenge 80 use a ribbon
Polka Doodles~ Ribbons & Bows

Materials used:

Papermania aperture cards (I made the aperture larger to fit image).
Winsor & Newton Inks
Black Butterfly peel off.
Anita's gems
Ribbon from crafty stash

The thought of this challenge was a nightmare, to be honest I was going to completely avoid it.  I have never used acetate on my cards and the sheer though terrified me!

But I had a bit of a play.......

I think painting the peel off version works best for me, I just wasn't quite happy with the other two.  Can't put my finger on what I don't like about them, I suppose just well out of my comfort zone.

Well I have tried something new today, what about you?  Have you tried anything new lately? Put yourself out of your comfort zone.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog
Hope you all have a great weekend

Love Em x
