So I decided to make my first Magic Slider Card.  I'm not sure I'll ever attempt another one, as it took me two full days and I'm not entirely thrilled with the results.  Here's the video tutorial I used, if you're interested.  I'm sure my frustration came from deciding I was going to have the slider come out sideways, which meant the longest side of my image.  I ended up having to add two brads to the original eyelet to pull the tag out, to keep the acetate in place.

I also needed to source acetate specifically for use with inkjet printers, which proved to be difficult and expensive!

My paper is from the Heartfelt Creations Woodsy Wonderland collection.  The sentiments are freebie clear stamps that came with a craft magazine.  The travel goodies are Little B.  I've also used a strip of dotted washi tape on the edge of the slider pocket and added some pearls.

Unfortunately I didn't take a pic of the image before I added the acetate, so these are all through the acetate.

Well, I hope you'll join us this week, showing us YOUR favourite colour combo!  

Remember to use your Winsor & Newton products (Promarkers; flex markers; tria markers; aqua markers or metallic markers) and we'd love you to mention which you've used.
