Acetate Makes


I decided to heat emboss a few images onto acetate using versamark ink and black embossing powder.  I took a used babywipe and needle felted green and pink felted wool into it.  I sewed the images onto the babywipe and sewed the babywipe onto a piece of calico which I'd previously dyed. I used the heat gun to shrink the babywipe (it wouldn't burn) and I burnt the bottom of the calico but it started to set on fire so I didn't do any more. I stamped green swirls with momento bamboo and raspberry adirondack ink.  I printed 'just good friends' onto a piece of acetate, outlined it in black pen and used a candle flame to melt it.  I sewed it onto the bottom of the calico.  I turned the fabric over at the top and sewed a line across to create a pouch to thread the wood through to create the hanger.  I put a bead at each end of the piece of wood and added a piece of co-ordinating wool to hang the piece.



This is a close up of the acetate image.  It has been coloured with Pearlescent Watercolour Paints from Once Upon a Stamp.



And this is a close up of the just good friends on the acetate. It has been computer generated and outlined with a fine black pen.

You are truly an artistc genius, I wouldn't even have thought of half the things you've done on here, and if I had thought of them, it would have looked like something to throw away, a bit of singed material and a used baby wipe :P
