Hope this finds all doing well. I was inspired by a Card that Karen B.over at The Bald Dragonfly http://thebalddragonfly.blogspot.com/2010/08/bluebirds.html
made. You have to go check her's out.
For mine: You have heard of Pheasant under Glass? Well, I have Bluebird under acetate. I think that I have found a way to use acetate that doesn't make me want to set it on fire.
Unlike Karen B. I used distressing ink to color my Bluebird before I used the Glimmer Mist.
It was a hard call not to use the back of my image for this one. I just could not get the red/orange color right on the front. But the back was just the color I was looking for. I thought about doing a window or just make the front of the card acetate. But I did not have a big enough sheet for that.
But I think that it turned out quite nice. Well, I had better get to the details. Thank You for visiting.

Image from Tiffany Doodles,Glossy Accents, Copics & Glimmer Mist. I used distressing ink for the nest before the Glimmer Mist. But as it dried the color was dulled. So I went back over it with my Copics.
This is the sheet that I used when I applied the Glimmer Mist to my bird & thought that it would make a good inside cover sheet
