ALLSORTS CHALLENGE - Week 221 - USE ACETATE
Several years ago I taught a scrapbooking class where we used acetate, Staz-On inks and alcohol inks to create interest. I'm recreating that technique for September's Stamp Club, and this is the end result. So when I found that Allsorts Challenge was using acetate this week, I decided to join in the fun.
The image is stamped with black Staz-On, then turned over and colored with a small paint brush using several different alcohol inks. The base of the card is created with three different ink colors - creme brulee, sunset, and autumn terracotta (all CTMH) - applied in a circular motion using a sponge ink applicator. I started with the lightest color and overlapped each successive color to create the "ombre" technique. The acetate is applied with only the brads - since any adhesive would show through.
Pop on over to the Allsorts Challenge Blog and see other great projects with acetate. Thanks for stopping by!
