Anything Goes Challenge 88 Seeing Double

Today starts our new fortnightly challenge over at the
Anything Goes Challenge Blog
We are seeing double for Challenge 88!!

I decided to take the challenge literally and stamped my image twice on acetate, coloured the beautiful ladies  (freebie DoCrafts) in with Promarkers and then turned one over, (Sandwiching the acetate between the frame and white card and then sticking them onto the black card)
I used StazOn Ink,  let the stamp dry slightly for 15 seconds once inked up and made the impression quickly without moving the stamp (Eventually !!!) - Colour on the reverse side to the ink to stop it bleeding 

I used those amazing  Spellbinder 5x7 Card Creators, cutting out 2 black oblongs, 2 white oblongs and 3 frames 
I used Flitter Glu and Gilding flakes in Sunshine on the frames to match the Orange and Yellow Promarkers

I stuck one frame to the front of a landscape A5 card blank (at the crease end), then the largest frame inside and the third flush on the back cutting off the white excess

I stamped the sentiment and pattern stamps onto card stock and used foam pads ...
...Top Tip  never Promarker onto the actual card it makes an unholy mess on the back lol

I'm looking forward to seeing all the fantastic "Seeing Double" entries please come and play along with us ...
... and pay a visit to Lynn's amazing Craft Den on line shop where lots of the products used can be purchased
