The story behind my banner!

As promise here is the story behind my banner:

As Etsy vendor; we learned that it's nice to have a banner and avatar that matches our products.
But when you do a variety of products like me, it's not easy to choose only one!
Also as my products are mostly OOAK (one of a Kind), the image would change every time!
So I decided to stop on this little decorative frames that I made to decorate a corner of my house;
And my son used these cute little deer to make my banner and avatar.
They are made with dimensional metal sheet and they are so adorable!...

Stamping on acetate (plastic sheet)

I wanted to try this technique that I think it's cool: stamping on acetate (or plastic sheet);
Plus I love to recycle and here you can recycle your acrylic packaging!
I decided to make an aquarium card for father day;
So as I don't have Stazon ink I stamped my hero arts fishes stamps with embossing ink and embossed them with black embossing powder.
I was a bit worry because my plastic was waving under the heat gun, but finally it gives a cool effect and look to the card!
For the background I choose a blue dots paper from Making memories and a blue pearl paper;
And then I attached the acrylic on the papers with some (Queen and Co) Brads.
I really like how my little aquarium card turns out!:

You can find some cool youtube videos on how to stamp on acetate...
