Don't faint. It's me AGAIN. I know! This is becoming a regular thing isn't it.

More acrylic I'm afraid, but this time I got a lovely round piece to play with. One of things I love most about acrylic is the opportunity it gives for lots and lots of lovely layering. You can really make the most of being able to see through to all the layers on your piece.

Here I've used stamping, heat embossing, dry embossing, stencilling, flock, Treasure Gold, the works! I've used a favourite Stampers Anonymous stamp set for this and the lovely Dinky bubble stencil from That's Crafty to create that lovely confetti effect on the back.

The butterfly is embossed acetate. I used the lovely Sizzix Butterfly with Texture Fade by Tim Holtz. Money well spent, that. I love, love, LOVE IT! :oD

The Seed Heads are a JOFY Stencil by PaperArtsy. I stencilled them in white flock and I love the contrast of textures. You get the smooth shiny surface of the acetate and acrylic, the varied textures of the embossing and the fluffy white seed heads. Add that gorgeous butterfly to the mix and you've got a whole lotta lovely going on there.

I LOVE how the back turned out. I used the latest colours from PaperArtsy. I think they're gorgeous. I added a touch of Snowflake Fresco Paint for contrast too. I'll definitely be using this background again. Yum!
