AFSS19 - A clear challenge

Here's my entry for Allison's AFSS19 challenge. Recently during our summer cleaning (yes we didn't get time to do that during spring!), my DH found some transparencies that he didn't need and I got them all for myself! When I read about this challenge, I "clearly" saw a way to use them! Initially I wanted to make the acetate card, but I think my transparencies were too thin to be used for that purpose. So instead I just used them for the outer cover. The photos are not very enlightening, I was not able to capture what I'd done. I applied a beautiful rub-on that was sent to me by Allison (you can see the picture here) on the acetate cover such that it would form a border around the flower stamped on the CS. Then I stamped "Best Wishes" on the bottom of the acetate so that it would get the background of the DP on the CS. So it looks as it's a ribbon with a sentiment. I also doodled some flowers with a glitter pen on the transparency.

It turned out really nice. Nice touch with adding little flowers on the clear layer. I use these transparencies with my dried flower cards to protect them.

What a terrific looking the idea of using rub-ons on the transparency (duh! why didn't I think of that?). Great colors too...thanks for playing!

Your card is very pretty Smriti! I have a tough time work with transparencies...*sad face*
