There's still a couple days to play in the
CAS Mix Up Acetate Challenge.
We're celebrating our birthday this month and have prizes!
Here's one last card (for now) using acetate.
Using Stamping, Alcohol Ink, Ghosting Technique, Acetate, Die Cut
I used a technique I saw on Jennifer McGuire's blog on my alcohol inked piece.
I inked a stamp with Archival ink and stamped then wiped off the ink with a soft cloth.
It removes some ink leaving a ghosted image. I repeated the process several times.
When it came to the dragonfly, I didn't think it showed up very well so I
stamped him in black and left him stamped.
Unfortunately the ink smeared a bit (it doesn't dry very fast or at all?) so
I filled in the schmeared wing with a black Sharpie and put some
acetate over the whole thing to keep it from schmearing more.
I die cut a piece of foam behind the frame so the acetate doesn't touch the
Oh, and I stamped Friend on the acetate.
Even if you don't use acetate, come on over to see the gallery at
