Less is more acetate

Wasn't sure I'd manage it this week, but the floor is fixed, the furniture is returned and my computer is reassembled, so here I am. The theme at less is more this week is to use acetate.
I used a lighthouse from Chocolate Baroque/ Elusive images and a sentiment from Crafty individuals. I used alcohol inks in denim, stream and aubergine on the acetate and popped it onto a piece of pearlescent card. Unfortunately I had no xyron refil left, so I used tape pen to attach the acetate which has made it a bit streaky. I might try another later if I get the chance...maybe with brads.
Thanks for looking!
