Acetate & Tissue

Well....this is my first shot at the acetate and tissue technique...and I have to say it's fun and I will be doing it again. For all the details on how to do this with pictures and all...check out the link above to Splitcoast Stampers, Beate's tutorial was very easy to follow I thought.

I stamped the lighthouse (PSX) in stazon on an acetate circle. Then applied the diamond glaze (crystal effects) on the back, added reinkers in celery, amethyst and bashful blue and mixed them slightly. Then I took some Interference Blue Pearl-Ex powder and sprinkled it in the general area of the clouds and house. Next I took some white tissue that had been wadded up and flattened it carefully over the mess, being careful to avoid any white *bubbles*. I let it dry overnight and then trimmed around the edge of the acetate and mounted it onto a white cardstock circle. I pierced around the edge for some added interest.

I was thinking I was missing something even with the four gem thingys on the corners (Mark Richards) when I got email telling me Follow Your Bliss had a new post.....and there was my finishing touch, thanks to Trudee!!!

It truly is a very effective card! I was looking at the tutorials on the SCS site and saw one with TP (toilet paper!!) - that was really amazing! Have to try that one. TFS!

Hi Michelle,
This is really neat! I have an affection for light houses so on top of a great image, you've shared a really cool technique! The colors you used are great and you're right, the bling in the corners is a great finishing touch!
