Written Tutorial: Acetate and Tissue Paper Stamping

Hello Ladies and Welcome Back!
Rachael here today with a great technique that will help you add interest, layers and bright vibrant color to your projects. This Acetate and Tissue Paper Stamping written tutorial can be applied to all sorts of different projects and will help you create a card with an aquatic theme, so it looks like your image is suspended in water or ice.

Rubber gloves, if you don't want to get inky.
Tissue Paper
StazOn Ink™
Stamps - Bombshell Stamps used here.
Clear drying glue or glaze
Fine sparkly glitter, if you wish.
Dye Ink Reinkers or alcohol inks
Neutral colored cardstock
Step 1 - Stamp your image on the Acetate with Stazon™ .
Step 2 - Stamp your neutral colored cardstock with an image you want to appear in the back of your Acetate piece. Doing this helps to add layers, depth and interest to the finished piece. Use a light-colored alcohol ink for the background.
Step 3 - Turn the reverse side of the acetate up and lightly coat with your glue or glaze.
Step 4 - Add a few drops of alcohol ink randomly around the sheet. Start with a a few and then add more later if you would like more.
Step 5 - Smear the ink or tap the ink with your finger to deposit color around the page as you like.
Step 6 - Apply a light dusting of glitter to add some sparkle if you like. Or, try using some old makeup or pigment if you’re feeling adventurous!
Step 7 - Add a slightly bigger piece of tissue paper over your piece of Acetate.
Step 8 - Turn Acetate piece over and place it on top of your cardstock piece.
Step 9 – Press your Acetate into your cardstock for a more liquid look and continue to move the glue/reinker mixture around with your fingers until you like how it looks. Set aside to dry.
Step 10 - Cut your image down to the size needed and attach to the base of your card.
You're done! You've just created a great new piece with a fab new technique! :)
