Wax Paper & Acetate

Wax Paper & Acetate


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.
