Inspiration Post: Acetate and Alcohol Inks

Hello again and today I am back with another inspiration post.  I find these the most difficult post of all.  Anyhow I hope you like what I came up with.

What you will need
Acetate template
Cardstock template
Acrylic paint and paintbrush
Alcohol inks  
Blending tool
Stamps of your choice

For this project I used Lots of Labels

  Apply a few drops of Alcohol inks to the stamp and then blend them together with your blending tool.

Now stamp onto the front of your acetate template. Let the ink dry.  (I used an old acetate gift box.  I never throw them away as you never know when you will need it.) For the purpose of this tutorial and photographing I stamped some  ink to get a clearer picture.

Once the ink has dried, turn your template over and paint the back with your paint.  You can go lighter or darker, it is really up to you.

While the paint is still wet, turn your template back to front side up and stick down onto your card stock.  The wet paint replaces having to use glue.

The end result on a card.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you all have a wonderful day

A Little Rain Must Fall

I don't know about you, but I love a good rain shower.
I love sitting out on my porch swing and just listening to the rain fall.
Here in Illinois, well my part of Illinois anyways, we have been greatly lacking in the rainfalls.  So when we do have a shower I make sure to enjoy it while it last.

This week's blog theme is Rainy Days.





I hope you have enjoyed looking at all the wonderful projects our design team has made.
