Drunken Stampers: I Can See Clearly Now

Happy Saturday! It’s time for another Drunken Stampers challenge! Thanks to all who joined us for our last challenge! I hope you’ll have fun partying with us for this one!
This week’s theme is “I Can See Clearly Now,” which means we want you to use acetate on your card! I found it hard to color on acetate with Copics, so I came up with a work-around to combine the bright and bold colors I wanted with the acetate.
Here’s my card:
Supplies: image stamp (Love Tattoo – Gourmet Rubber Stamps), patterned paper (memory box – pixie, Basic Grey – Sweet Threads, Fancy Pants – It’s the Little Things), black card stock, black grosgrain ribbon, embossing folder (Sizzix), brads, acetate (PaperTrey Ink), Copic markers, Bic permanent marker, ink (StazOn black, Brilliance Graphite Black), foam squares.
I stamped my main image on the acetate with Staz-On black ink. I stamped the image again on 110lb. white cardstock and colored it in like I normally would. Then, I fussy cut the image and used vellum adhesive to adhere it to underside of the acetate (so it wouldn’t show where I adhered the paper). 
I didn’t cut out the really thin pieces; instead, I used a permanent marker to color those directly on the underside of the acetate. Then, I made frames to go around the image, added foam squares for dimension, then created the background and base for my card.
So, what will you create for this week’s challenge? If it’s not clear to you yet, you can visit the other Drunken Stampers DT members to find out what they’ve created: Chaitali, Donna, Elizabeth, NatPeggy, Spike and Steph! And don’t forget to link up your entry at the Drunken Stampers blog! See you there!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

    I was sooo wondering how you did this and love the look of it! The effect makes it look like that you just coloured directly on the acetate. Ingenious! Simply gorgeous dahhhhling!
