OCC Clear Challenge



















Today's OCC challenge is to make a card/project with something clear... clear buttons, acetate, clear embossing powder...something clear.

...I tried like you wouldn't believe to incorporate clear buttons on the card, then I tried clear acetate flowers that I punched, I tried a Heidi Swapp ghost flower.....they all gave me fits and nothing worked....so I gave up and just left the clear swarovski crystals and I used clear embossing powder on the sentiment.

I'm not super happy with how my card turned out, but I DO like the Cecily Cinnamonsticks image that my friend Dawn Easton (thanks, Dawn!!) was sweet enough to stamp for me! I think the image is adorable and it was really fun to color.

The pink circle and green scallop circles are up on separate layers of dimensionals. Angel Wings Shimmerz were added to her wings along with Diamond Stickles. Liquid Pearls were added to the neckline and wrists of her shirt as well as along the scalloped apron. The layout is Taylor's TECC47 Sketch.
