Acetate and Silkies


I printed these images onto acetate and painted the backs of them with my new silkies. Then made them into 4 x 4's. I've only got 4 colours so I was a bit limited, but I'm pleased with how they turned out.

Is that something else I need or are they similar to another product? They look good, whatever they are.

Hi Sam
was going to ask the question, but thanks for the link (getting there you know) I love the effect on the bottom one and the image but think the frame on the top right is fab.
Hugs Kate xx

Wow! love them and with only four colours you've made great combinations.
Now there's something else I didn't know I couldn't live without and there's a show at Aintree Racecourse next week.... guess what I'll be looking for?

Wow Sam - these are gorgeous and what stunning results you achieved. I think sometimes it is better to have a limited amount of colours - you get such wonderful results with them

It doesn't look as if the colours limited you - I like the top left one best.
