Sunshine Acrylic Banner

This is a banner that I made from a piece of clear acrylic celebrating summer. I wanted something that was going to be representative of a bright, CLEAR summer day - hence the acrylic :-) - and it had to be sunshine yellow - so I used sparkly Glimmer Mists in Lemon Zest, Yellow Daisy and Golden Terracotta, and for extra sparkle I added rhinestones. The image is a photo stamp from Oxford Impressions with the flowers colored by painting with Glimmer Mist and I also distressed the edges - maybe I should have wrinkled it a bit, too - you know too much time spent in the sun causes wrinkles! I added swirls in white StazOn onto the acrylic, swirls as sunbeams and an embossing powder resist of swirls with the Glimmer Misted torn background piece. Be sure to check out other pieces for the Gingersnap Creations Random Redhead Challenge where the theme is "Sunshine" and submit a piece for the challenge! Stamp credits: Oxford Impressions, Hero Arts, Stampers Anonymous, Artistic Outpost and Autumn Leaves.
