Today we have gorgeous project to inspire us
for those Cards we still have to make....
Here is Hazel Harler who is Caught in Crystal:
I haven't done this technique for a few years so
I thought it was time to have another go.
You will need a sheet of acetate, alcohol inks, glossy accents
and crumpled tissue paper.
Other items that can be added are glitter, micro beads,
mica powder, gilding flakes etc
I squeezed stickles and glossy accents over the acetate
Then I dripped in some alcohol ink
I covered the inked acetate with the tissue paper and pressed it down,
if you are wearing rubber gloves you can do this with your fingers,
I would suggest you use a ball of kitchen towel
if you're not wearing gloves.
Leave to dry preferably overnight.
This is a close up after it had dried
A few sheets of different colours.
I've made a few cards with some of my acetate.
For this card I stamped the card blank with snowflakes using Fresco metalic glaze, the wooden snowmen were covered with Treasure Pewter wax
For this card I covered some black card with inca gold Alchemy wax and used a Stampendous stamp and die for the poinsettia. The acetate had some glitter added to it.
The acetate can also be die cut, I used a Sizzix die. The card was coloured with distress ink and I layered different handmade papers at the bottom. I added gilding flakes to the acetate
I covered the Tando snowmen with Frantage embossing enamel, I added mica powder to the acetate and the snowy mesh is from my stash.
For the next two cards I stencilled Imagination Crafts sparkle medium using Dreamweaver stencills. The sentiments on most of the cards are remnent rubs
I hope you can give this technique a try as you can get some beautiful results.
Hazel this technique is awesome and the cards are beautiful.
Thank you for sharing this with us
