Hi dear Sweet Pea Stamps friends, today I want to show you something totally different as I usual do. I tried out a new technique. I stamped and coloured on acetate. Those beautiful images from ching-chou kuik's are perfect for this. I used 'Ladybug' here, which is available on Plate # 79 together with three other fabulous images. Ladybug is available as a single stamp as well. 

I stamped the image with a black Staz'On ink pad on a sheet of acetate. Then I coloured the image on the backside with Copics! On the front side I added some little accents with a white gel pen. The background I used here is the card which was in a package of Prima flowers. I thought it would fit perfect as the background for my image, which is shining through the acetate. I abstained adding embellishments as they would take off the focus from this gorgeous image which I didn't want.

Have a magical day!
Hugs, Karina
