Playing with acrylic

After so much "hard work" for the blog hop, I felt like relaxing and playing a little bit last night. It has been a very bad week, we had a bad car crash last Saturday, and although we are OK, it was a very scary experience. So, when DD and DH were both asleep in the living room couches at 7 p.m. yesterday, I decided it was time to play. I chose sketch 225 from pencillines, which had a banner in it, and decided to make an acrylic banner. But I didn't want something completely clear, so I painted it with acrylic on one side, and heat embossed it on the other. So great to have my heat gun again (the other one lasted only 5 minutes after I plugged it into a 220 outlet!!!). This is the final result, and I must say I LOVE it:

Ok, you can see I love the banner more than the LO, as I showed it first, but I think the LO looks good, too. 

This Pink Paislee Sweetness collection was just perfect for this photo. I've cut holes in most of the papers I got in my kit for this layout, so I will be using the rest for cards, otherwise, if I leave them with other scraps I might forget to use them, and they are too yummy to waste!!! Now, here comes a warning, lots of more close-up pics coming now! First the banner:

Then the other details:

Now, off to work on the Pink Paislee scrap cards!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow Caro, the banner is beautiful and I love your layout too. So glad no one was badly hurt in the accident, but I'm sure it was a very traumatic for all of you.
