Silkies on Acetate

I made this card a while ago but have only just got round to blogging it! I wanted to show you what a fab effect Silkies paints have when used on acetate. What I've done below is use a large stamp on acetate with Stazon, and on the reverse I've applied the Silkies directly to the acetate. Once dry, I matted it onto black card. The paper is Forever friends and the panel behind the image is embossed with a cuttlebug folder, I think it's called Birds and Swirls. The swirly stamps in the two corners are by Dovecraft. To finish off, I've added ribbon, gems and two tiny pegs which I coloured black with my promarkers!

Thanks for looking! :)

What a great technique Gemma, I don't have any silkies so that's something I am gonna have to take a look at.
