Scroll down to the next post for information on how to WIN 3 free stamps sets from ISC.
On SCS in the last couple of weeks they had a tutorial for an interesting background technique called Acrylic Smash. This is basically stamping on an acetate sheet (transparency) and on the back paint/rub on some acrylic paints.
Here is the link to the tutorial on SCS.
I have two cards to show you using this technique:
The Smash is on the layer behind the Dec 25 - I used Cranberry and Gold Ranger Paint Dabbers, white card stock and the background image from ISC new sheet Eclectic Christmas. I really like how this card turned out but I wanted you to have a better sample to see the background image and technique so...
The background for this I used Silver Paint Dabber and blue card stock and only covered parts of the acetate with the silver. The snowflake is cut from a cuttle bug and I glued 4 of them together (we'll call it faux chipboard) and sprinkled with Martha Steward Snow Glitter.
Here's a close up of the Snowflake - look at that shimmer!!!
Have a great day!
