acetate and alcohol

at tomorrow's atc club, we'll be working with alcohol inks and acetate, and the challenge is to incorporate something metallic into your design.
this one is super thick acetate printed with gridlines. i dropped on 3 ink colors and let them randomly bleed together. then i filled in some of the squares with different colors of distress stickles. i embellished it with a piece of crinkled foil tissue and a brad.
for this atc, i started with velvety flocked cardstock. i overlayed a bit of a printed transparency, which i inked with green and copper on the back. i also inked the plastic tag, and secured the ribbon on the card with little metal pinch clips.

atc club is the first saturday of every month—if you are in northern california, join us! all the details are on my website under class


  1. Very cool idea! I have done something similar. come check it out on my blog. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I like the way you are trying out unusual techniques in your ATC class...hope its going well for you. That top grid one would be great as the bottom one with the swirly white design and thanks for visiting my blog today

  3. Man, both of those ATC's are gorgeous. I especially love the flocked one with the transparency overlay.


Thanks so much for visiting my blog - I look forward to visiting yours, too!
