Acetate and Stazon - a great combination!




This is super easy and looks so good - not something I could properly capture on film. You take acetate and stamp with permanent ink - like Stazon - and then layer paper on front and inside (covering the adhesive). Presto and you're done! I added stickles to the acetate images on the ornament images. When you do the layering of the cardstock, you have to do it on the back as well to cover the adhesive. It takes some time and lots of cutting but it's worth it. Give it a try! You can buy acetate from any office supply store. The Stazon ink is necessary otherwise the ink will just slide off. I didn't experiment with embossing the ink but I've heard it has been done. Anyone have any experience with that?
