Default Acetate Tag use?

After applying for a DT position, the company sent me this as part of a consolation gift of which I've no idea how to use. Suggestions are welcome!

OOOHHHH, such a cool tag. Let's see;
an overlay on another tag/card after coloring the acetate tag on the back with copic or alcohol inks
coloring a plain tag to match the background
an over lay on a 'garden' card with a stamped garden background
looking through a window to a scene outside
a really neat bookmark
layering over a collage card
cutting out each element & doing a 3d card

I don't know who the vendor is but that has lots of uses. Have fun playing with this.

I'd definitely be coloring that on the back and then make it the focal point on a card - what a gorgeous image!

I just learned that you can send those heavier acetate tags through the cuttlebug. Another way to go.

I'd make a glitter picture out of it! Ya know....like a stained glass window, only on the back of it.

All of the listed ideas are great! I have one to add: Permanent metallic markers colored from the back. I've been playing with the whole embossing acetate (I use overhead transparencies, they curl a bit when run thru' using a tight all over pattern, but can still be colored & folded into ornaments or used on cards etc.) & then coloring in the pattern from the back using the metallics & sharpies. The metallics are more translucent than see thru' but the sharpies look like stained glass. The best metallic markers I've used so far are Glitter DecoColor pens that I found at the craft store & used a coupon to buy. They're more opaque, but they have a nice sparkle when the light hits from the front. Sorry about not making the DT, but I do hope you have fun with your freebie!

I sure hope you will post what you finally come up with! All the ideas are lovely!
I cannot think of anything left out. I guess you could paper piece parts of it too but the other suggestions sound so much more vibrant and fun!
Happy playing! Keep applying too!

Here is another idea. Turn the acetate over and squirt on some white glue and drops of reinkers. Blend, but don't mix it up completely. You want to keep the individual colors of the reinkers. Crumple up some white tissue paper, then press it on to the reinker-glue mixture. Let dry.

You can also sprinkle glitter into the glue and re-inker before pressing on the tissue paper. I've seen this demo at conventions and it comes out really pretty. Thanks for the reminder Deb!!
