Auntys Design Team Acetate Pop Art card


We (the DT Team) up loaded our designs yesterday over on Auntys the theme was to use Acetate this is one of the things i did. I made a Birthday card for my son.
I folded a piece of A4 card in half and randomly stamped the Happy Birthday on it. Then folded a piece of A4 acetate in half, printed a picture off of my son on to plain paper and placed it inside the acetate and drew round the picture with a permanent marker on the front of the acetate not picking up to much detail keeping it simple.
Then turned it over and painted on the inside of the acetate with acrylic paint using bright colours like in pop art, when it was dried i cut the photo out that i printed and attached it to the area that i painted on the inside of the acetate to tidy it up. I used stretch magic (a clear elastic) to attach the attach the acetate to the card at the spine.
