Clearly There Are No Bones About It

Hi, everybody! I'm back with another Online-Card-Class Inspired Card.  :)

Today's card features the layered acetate technique,with the back layer for the dinosaur's body and the front layer for its bones.

Bo Bunny trail mix dp; Staples acetate
Stampin' Up! no bones about it stamp set
skeleton heat embossed with Versamark and SU white powder
other inks used: various Distress Inks; StazOn jet black
circles punched with SU owl builder and cupcake punches
SU linen thread; stash sequins
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Zig 2-way pen; Ranger multi medium matte

I really like the effect achieved layering this acetate. Gotta remember to use this technique again.  :)

In addition to sharing this in the OCC Gallery, I'm linking this up to the Simon Says Anything Goes and the SAS4Kids Animal Cards Challenges -- dinosaurs are animals, right?!

Parting Thoughts

This morning, humans and their fur babies celebrated the 19th Annual Dog Walk for the local humane association. Our fur baby would have had a miserable time because he's scared of other dogs... in spite of acting tough once the coast is clear. So, hubby and I walked with a couple of neighbors in his honor. 

Those of us at W2CB would like to remind you that are April/May challenge ends on Wednesday. In addition to a Guest Design gig, there are Paper Smooches gift certificates up for grabs. We'd love for you to stop by and play along with us.

Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!


  1. What a totally fun and cute card! I love the image combined with that perfect sentiment, and the technique you used looks wonderful!

  2. I've never heard of that technique, but looks neat! What a fun card, Sybrina!
