Acetate Flower

This week over at Just for Fun, the challenge is to use Acrylic/Plastic.

I cut some Tattered Florals from embossing folder packaging, embossed one with Swiss Dots & one with Victorian Fleur.

I then went over the embossed patterns with a gold paint marker then painted over with acrylic paint.  The flower centre is a bottle cap filled with beads.  Hope it fits the challenge!








I'm not sure if I'll leave it as is and just hang it on some ribbon, or use is as a tag/card embellishment later.

Thanks for visiting.
