It's time for a new challenge at Technique Time Tuesday-are you ready? It's called Smackin' Acetate. It's super easy and fun! Mynnette has made a wonderful video. In a nutshell you swipe your markers over a piece of acetate and spritz some water and then put your cardstock on top of it (hence the smash).
So here is what I made:
I used a dictionary page as the background and then used some Tim Holtz stamps and gear stamps for Graphic 45. The hand is a movers and shaker from Tim. I used one of the simple sayings from Tim's stampers anonymous collection for the sentiment.
I used Distress markers black soot and faded jeans for that middle background where I used the acetate smash technique. I then was able to continue using those colors for the rest of the card with the Distress Ink. Right now I love some black soot. I have inked before with black so it shouldn't be that big a deal-but if I can put black soot on something-I will!
Oh I did change up the technique a little bit-I used Perfect Pearls Mist-gold to react with the distress markers while the ink was still on the acetate. This added a little shimmer to the marker color.
Here's a picture where you can see a few bits of gold.
I would like to enter this into the following challenge:
This is going to a friend of ours that is on bed rest-doctor's orders. Hopefully, this will brighten his day a little! :)
Thanks for stopping by! Until next time my friends-Just Smack it! :) (don't go crazy though!)
