It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's We Can See Clearly Now. Use acetate, vellum, clear embossing powder or anything you can think of that is a little transparent.
What a great theme is this, I wanted to work with heat resistance acetate for a while now. This theme is perfect for that. Actually, I wanted to use it with my laser printer and work with Foil. But I don't know how well the acetate can takethe heat... And I don't wanna ruin my printer over it. Okay, that were my crazy thoughts... Let's go on with the actual project I made.
I'm so in love the Opal Magic Alchemy paint from Prima Marketing. Since I also wanted to work with the Distress crayons I used it as a base. This paint is very smooth, and doesn't have much bite as other paint. But by applying several layers I finally got the result I wanted.
After I die cut the butterflies, I gave them some color with Distress Crayons. The same applies for acetate, it doesn't stay so well when you want to rub it or if you add some water. But with some patience and adding more layers, you can build up some color.
Another tip if you try acetate with wet glue, sand the back first here with some sandpaper, otherwise it comes right off ... I speak from experience!
