Your Way

 This smacking acetate technique will give you an original card every time. It is very similar to the clear block stamping technique. The difference is that you add your ink to an acetate sheet instead of a clear block. I found that the acetate sheet seems to lighten the color a bit more. This could be due to the weight of the sheet vs. the weight of the clear block. I am guessing. Both techniques yield amazing results. Here is the smacking acetate result. What are your thoughts?

   Summer Days
   A Good Man

   Flirty Flamingo A-2
   Crushed Curry 5-3/8 x 4-1/8
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4

   Rich Razzleberry
   Flirty Flamingo
   Crushed Curry

   Smackin' Acetate

   Acetate Sheet
   Water Spritzer

To create this smacking acetate background you place ink on an acetate sheet. (A transparency sheet works the same.) 

Spritz the ink with water. (Spray bottle is the same as a spritz bottle.) 

Place the sheet onto a Whisper White panel and press on it with your fingers to move the ink around. 

Remove it and let it dry.

I then stamped directly onto the panel and allowed the color from the background to provide the color for my image.

I like the simplicity of the card and the softness of the colors. I also like the way one color will bleed onto the others.
