Polkadoodles Challenge

Well here we are at Friday again (Friday, the 13th to be exact!) and for the first time in 3 weeks I don't have to work - YIPPEE! This week the challenge is to print onto acetate or vellum. I haven't done this in ages and I must remind everyone that the effects are stunning but be careful when you print onto vellum as it smudges easily. It was all I could do to keep the extra black ink on my fingers and off of the card.

I printed one of the Blossom Explosion backing papers from the Back to Nature CD onto plain vellum. I then cut panels to fit my ivory concertina card and framed them with plain black card to give a stained glass effect. I then stamped the butterfly and sentiment from the Fairy Flutterfly set - Bevvieboo. The butterfly is colored with Letraset Aquamarkers with a few highlights using regular Promarkers. I added a bit of glitter glue and Glossy Accents to the butterfly and also some doodling on the circle mount (cut with Nesties). Please remember that our MEGA coloring challenge is still going on (as well as this week's vellum/acetate one) so pop over to Polkadoodle and play along with us.


  1. Wow! This is so colourful! I have to leave any printed vellum alone otherwise I get the ink everywhere!!! Learnt the hard way!

  2. A very special effect, a beautiful creation.
    Happy crafting

  3. Wow, what colors...and how I love that butterfly.
    When I print with Vellum, I use "draft" and it seems to do a better job.
    Glad you have a Friday off. Hugs.
