DCM - I Can See Clearly Now!

The Daring Cardmakers challenge this week is
I Can See Clearly Now
and I would love to see something clear on your card. It could be an acetate card, an acetate embellishment, a window cut in the card, clingfilm, OHP sheet, Mirror fragments - anything that shows that your card is clearly one of the best!

Do you ever have an idea of a card in your head that just doesn't translate on paper.  I've had 3 attempts using an acetate window, and this fairy stamp and I'm still not completely happy.

1st attempt - too many rounded corners and the fairy is too low...

2nd attempt - dropped the black inkpad on it...

3rd attempt - the card is too big for the image...

Now I'm thinking that maybe the papers just don't match the stamps!  Help!
Papers: Bo Bunny Tis The Season, Basic Grey June Bug
Stamps: Fairy and Sentiment Funstamps.

  4. love the 3rd one....but they are all good Dolly.
    This is just a thought/thinking out loud, but do you think you need something under the fairy (3rd card) on the acetate...something in black...a stitch effect or more wording?
    Thanks for taking part in this weeks dare x

  5. I love all three of them - don't mind the rounded corners on the 1st, I can't see where you've dropped the ink pad on the 2nd and the 3rd is just perfect! A fabulous idea with the acetate too and I love how you've dressed the angel to match the borders. They're fab.

    Love Lynda xxx

  10. I love the 3rd one! Glad I am not the only person who has card disasters. I had one last night with a card I was making. I added the finishing touch of glitter glue and it made the stamped image bleed! I was gutted as the colouring of my image had turned out really well as had my sewing!
    I think I may have rescued it this morning though with Flower soft. Only time will tell when the glue has dried!
    Glad you liked the Elzybells stamps. Beware though, they quickly become addictive! If you would like me to send you some stamped images to try let me know as I have lots of them :-)

  11. Oh, my goodness.. Ms Perfection or what? lol ;o) I have that 'translation error' all the time, but I wish my 'errors' all turned out like yours! These are great.. My fave is the middle one.

    Hugs,
