Stamping on Acetate

I would like to show you a fun way to color a stamped image on acetate.

Begin by stamping image on an acetate panel with Jet Black Stazon ink.  I save all the panels that many of my stamps come on for these types of projects.  I used Art-Kure Silver Birch for this project.

The alcohol in the Spectrum Noir markers will dissolve and smear the Staz-on ink so the secret is to flip the panel over and color it from the back side!

For this project, color the grass with JB7 and the trunk with TN8.  Then just simply dot various colors on the bushy part of the tree.  I used DR5-TB6-GB4-JG7 and OR3.

For the next step I used my Ink Blending Tool with a Alcohol ink felt pad to apply color to a panel of Luxury Centura Pearl cardstock. Just dot ink directly on to the felt pad and then apply to cardstock panel.

I used LG3 for the grass and TB3 for the sky.  Then I sprayed the entire panel with Stick and Spray adhesive.

Apply the Acetate panel to the background panel.

The final step is to create your card! Sentiment is from Friendship Sentiments.

Sharon Curtis with Canuck Crafts taught this technique at an Accredited instructors class at CHA last summer.  Here is a look at the card we made in that class using Oak Tree. We dotted the piece of metal embellishment with markers too!

I hope you’ll give this technique a try!

    Truly stunning, am new to Spectrum Noirs and am enjoying all the different ideas. I like the idea of colouring in on acetate, as my work seems to be bleeding a lot on the projects that I have done so far. I have only had my pens for a week so it may be that I just need to practise some more.

    Ooooo pretty, bet it would look lovely if the acetate panel was popped off the paper, too.
