I am participating in a card swap next month at Red Letter Journals, one of our local scrapbooking shops. The challenge theme is backgrounds. So, here’s what I came up with.
I started with a piece of acetate slightly smaller that my card. I stamped my image—Dragonfly from Earth Art International—on the acetate using black StazOn ink. When stamping on acetate, take special care not to smear the image. (This looks like I’ve stamped on green, but it’s clear acetate laying on my green work mat.)
On the reverse side of the acetate, I puddled several colors of Sakura Hobby Craft 3D Crystal Lacquer—pink, gold, green, blue, and violet.
Using the tip on my finger, I blended the lacquers while spreading them to the edges of the acetate. Just a word of caution here: don’t overdo the blending or you will lose the individual colors and the results will look like mud.
