Challenge Chicks #8-Clear Sheets

This weeks challenge chicks challenge is to use the clear card sheets that are available from Cornish Heritage Farms.

These sheets are awesome! They are much thinker than the acetate sheets from the office store so you can actually use them as a card base like I did for this card. You can learn more about them in the product spotlight.

I never used to use clear sheets in my cardmaking because I wasn't sure what to do with them but I am addicted now!

Cornish Heritage Farms Stamps:
-Large Polka Dot Backgrounder
-Beach Turtles (Friendly Kritters)
-Hello from Silhouette Blooms I (Kim Hughes)

-Clear Acetate Sheets
-Prismatic Majestic Purple Medium & Dark by Prism
-Georgia Pacific White

-Adirondack Pitch Black & PUrple Twilight dye ink by Ranger
-white Stazon ink by Tsukineko

-colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with mineral spirits and blending stumps
-satin ribbon by Ofray

-Nestabilities by Spellbinder

The other designers have been having a blast with the clear sheets too. Go check them out and then give it a try yourself!
