26.04.08


A recent Gothic Arch challenge was "April showers". Whilst blog hopping I saw someone using diamond glaze on acetate and thought that this would be good way to produce raindrops!! I never seem to be able to get on with acetate. I've seen some gorgeous creations out there in blogland on acetate, but, try as I might, I can never get anything to look even vagely respectable!! Anyway, this arch did use acetate, I stamped the fairies on the back and added colour, then I dropped diamond glaze for the raindrops added a second generation alcohol inked background and here's the result.
