Wednesday was another lovely day of workshops, our theme this week was alcohol inks and acetate.
The first project was a card using double sided adhesive and acetate. The acetate was first coloured using alcohol inks and a piece of felt attached to a blending tool. The stamp set I chose to use was, Anna's Collection - Just for You by Hobby Art (this is my new favourite). Crumbled tissue paper was used as a backing before matting on blue card. Finishing touches of card candi, hand drawn border and stamped image were used.
This second card was created by initially colouring acetate as before. As acetate can be slippy to stamp on, the images are stamped on card and placed behind the acetate, attached using brads. Random stamping is used on the card to create a decorative background.
This technique can be used with a variety of stamps, images or decoupage sheets for speed.
This is a very quick card using just one layer of a decoupage image, as the background with the coloured acetate in front. We all need a quick man's card at some point.
Alcohol Inks are really easy to use and produce brilliant results, if haven't tried them, please give them ago. I can thoroughly recommend them!
