Transparently Alcoholic Lotus Blooms

This is my card for today - rather late in the day as I have been busy with other things!! It is inspired by the Arty Girlz Challenge for this week, "Transparent". It will also fit with Rainbow Lady's Challenge from guest, Hazel, "peeloffs". The roundle is stamped on acetate, with versamark and stone grey stazon, embossed with clear ep. I then painted the image with alcohol inks. The stamp is by Creative Expressions, and is a firm fav of mine. The paper image is one from my stash of oriental paintings, and is decoupaged with one roundle layer to echo the stamped shape.

The background paper was created in 3D 2 Card Builder, using the lotus image to form the tiles. The dragonflies peelsoffs are stuck on to another sheet of the paper, and painted randomly, with a mixture of alcohol inks and Glaze Drops.

The backer contains elements created in a similar way, and the round shape is cut from silver mirror board. The whole card is quite large at just over 8ins square, and is white, as a base, for a change - I don't often use white crease card. I thought it looked completey different from my other cards this week!!. Hope you like it ...
