I was inspired by the Capture Life scrapbooking paper pack I had been using to scrapbook and thought it would make the perfect card. I really like the look of the bokeh paper in the background - I think I may need to get more of this! The little square on top was part of a preprinted paper in the pack, and I used the Tim Holtz debossing folder for the hello sentiment.
I started from scratch with acetate and a manilla tag. I used alcohol inks, including the silver metallic one, on the acetate (I didn't end up using the rectangle), and I layered Distress Inks on the tag and then sponged over top with a Crafter's Workshop viewmaster stencil. The diecut is a Tim Holtz viewmaster cut - love it!!
I cut the right side of the tag off and embossed the cut-off portion with a ruler embossing folder. I never get tired of the way Distress Ink reacts to droplets of water on top!
The half circle of alcohol inked acetate was placed behind the viewmaster diecut. I love the way it looks like a scene in the little windows!

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! We had a very sunny, warm one here and enjoyed going for a walk along the river, the amusement park and the Farmer's Market as well as going to an 'old fashioned' ice cream parlour (yay for the kids) and a beautiful quilt store (yay for me). Ok, I enjoyed the ice cream too, lol.
