Tuesday Throwdown #240: All Clear

Happy Tuesday, friends! Hope you are ready for another week of crafting fun with the Tuesday Throwdown gang. Our challenge theme this week is "All Clear". All you have to do is incorporate some clear material on your project - such as acetate, vellum, anything see-though.   Our sponsor is Stamping Boutique but you can use any stamps from your stash as long as you follow the theme.

For our challenge, I made a shaker card using the Twirling Fairy digi. My clear element is a sheet of acetate used on the window. The paper is form an old My Mind's Eye 6x6 pad and the greeting is from Clearly Besotted's Mini Basic Banners, stamped with VersaFine Majestic Blue. I'm sorry about the angle of the photo. It's not easy getting a decent shot without seeing my ugly mug in the reflection! :)

I coloured the fairy with Graph'It markers and gave her a generous coat of Wink of Stella Clear Clear Brush Tip Glitter marker. Didn't forget the shakes - these are a mix of various sequins form Pretty Pink Posh and Doodlebug.

Now it's your turn to create a project based on this week's theme: "All Clear". For ideas and inspiration, take a peek at what the rest of the DT members have made. Remember to link up your project at the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog by 3pm Pacific / 11pm UK on Monday,  20th April 2015. And the most important requirement: Have Fun!

And speaking of fun... here's a shot of Mr Parker caught smooching the Twirling Fairly! Oh ... to be young and always in love! :)

Rosie is pretty much the same. Her appetite is very poor, which makes meal times especially challenging. She's not complaining... never has, never will. Peanut and Richard are treating Rosie with utmost respect by keeping their boisterous revelry toned down while she rests.

Thank you for all your kind words and thoughts on my last post.
