Favourite technique at Craft a scene - week 2

Hello there and Happy Sunday to you! I hope you are well and happy and coping in this wild weather. The winds have been really bad up here this weekend. Still rather appropriately we went to the swimming pool in Kendal - had a great swim - I managed 24 lengths this week and my breathing just seemed to click - much much better I think!

Its the second Sunday of the month so its my second chance to tell you about the current challenge over at Craft a scene - the theme for february is to use your favourite technique to create a scene. I chose the technique of acetate overlay - and I've done the same again this week.



I used some of the sheena oriental stamps to create the main background scene - painting with distress inks. Then on the overlay I added the branches of the cherry blossom in versamark, heat set with black wow powders and painted on the reverse with silkies from Imagination Crafts. 

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Thanks for dropping by today and for any comments you choose to leave! Big Hugs and hope to see you again soon!
