Ride the waves

Hi guys, guess what it's pouring down yet again!!! still no surprise there !!! lol

to be honest, it has meant yet more crafting time lol,
Teddy Bo wants anything but a card, well the other week I won a free image for coming in the top three and this is what I was sent, well I think my brain went into over drive because this is what I've made, nothing too easy for me you know lol,
those of you who have used acetate know it isn't the easiest thing to use lol,
I must be daft, No don't answer that!!!
Got you all on your toes now haven't I thinking ohhh what's she done! he he,
Go on, are you disappointed lol!!!
I just couldn't get out my head using it with acetate! I know go figure!!
so I cut a mat of cardboard, added some paper, then added an acetate wave for this fabby Teddy Bo surfer  image to ride the waves,

The image is coloured with copics and then cut out,
 I've attached a tab made out of acetate with glue and placed it on the curl of the wave!!!

It's finished off with machine stitching and Tim Holtz letters saying surfer dude,
well that's it lol,

Teddy Bo ~ anything but a card
Simon Says Stamp ~ stitching (2nd entry)
Dutch Dare ~ summer fun

I will be back tomorrow with my Basic grey DT creation, with no acetate I promise lol !!!

catch you later,
love and hugs Liz xx
