Sentimental Sunday #14 Switch It Up

This challenge is about trying something new.  Well, this one has alot of something new.
I did the paper by using Tim Holtz distressing inks & a spounge.  Then there's the acetate. I've never had much luck with using acetate in this way. And not sure that I will again.  I think the first thing I did wrong was load my stamp " Pineapple from Impression Obsession" with too much ink & then took too long to stamp. When I put the stamp to the acetate it stuck.  Then I couldn't get any color to stay.  So I restamped the image on my Copic's paper painted with Distressing ink, cut that out & glued  to the back of the acetate. But even with all that I'm ok with how it turned out. You can kind of see the green.
I kind of like the ink spots too. The border punch is one of Martha Stewarts. I think that covers every thing. Thank You for stopping by & for considering my entry.
