The dress

As our challenge at "Less is More" this week has been about acetate, I decided to have a play myself and this is the first time that I have tried added gilding flakes to it. I stamped the acetate with Stazon and then after adding some glue, I applied the gilding flakes in Variegated Green to the back of the image.
The acetate is attached to the Laura Ashley (I think) under paper only at the top and the DST is concealed by the MS punched, decorated  flap.
The sentiment is Penny Black stamped on the paper not the acetate.
