Smackin' Acetate Silhouette

  Thanks to my customer Jill for asking about the Smackin' Acetate technique a few weeks ago.  I came up with this project for my stamping ladies to teach them this super easy and fun technique. 

  This is one of those fun techniques that give you a different look each time...there is no way to make each card look the same which I think is pretty of a kind for sure!  All you do is take a piece of acetate (or window sheet), color it with your markers (here we used More Mustard, Rich Razzleberry and Midnight Muse), spray with water (we used 2 squirts from the new Stampin' Up! misters) and then smack (hence the smackin' part of the name!) the acetate down on top of your cardstock and rub for a second.  You can see the ink and water soaking into the paper.

  While your smacked Whisper White panel is drying make the rest of the card.  Midnight Muse base with 2 corners rounded, Rich Razzleberry panel punched on one side with the scalloped edge punch, and a Midnight Muse stitched ribbon tied with a knot.

  Once your colored panel is dry ink up the Serene Silhouette stamp with Stazon and stamp right over the top of the colors.  Adhere it to the Rich Razzleberry panel, adhere the ends of the ribbon on the back and attach the whole thing to your card base. And finally a rhinestone in the the center of the tallest flower finishes this card.

  Get out your markers and a piece of acetate and see what one of a kind backgrounds you can come up with!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
