Smackin' Acetate

I guess I'm not going to be able to call my techniques Technique Tuesday anymore considering I haven't gotten one up on a Tuesday yet!  I suppose I'll just call it Technique Tutorials.  So on with the Technique Tutorial!
I decided to show you how to do smackin' acetate for the technique this week.  It is really easy and fun and you get a really great background!!  This is something anyone can do and get great results!!  It will look like you took time to make a nice watercolored background when if fact all you did is scribble a little!!!  And ANYONE can scribble!  So now on to the nitty gritty!!

Supplies:
Transparencies, stamp and write markers, water in a spray bottle, whisper white cardstock, stamps, embellishments

Step 1:
Scribble on the transparency with your markers......not much to that huh??

Step 2:
Mist your scribbles with water until the colors start to get runny.....Oooooo difficult!!

Step 3:
Press your white cardstock into the color and pull off

Step 4:
Finish your card!

Now is that not one of the easiest things ever??  And look at that background!  It looks like a sky huh???  I love, love, love it!!  Now.....you all go smack some acetate and let me know how it goes!  Stay tuned for a fun project later this week!

I tried your ribbon cutting technique and loved it! I have never done smacking acetate either though I have been thinking about it alot lately, it's on my list of "to dos". I will definately have to give it a go now!

You could still call it Technique Tuesdays! For a laugh! LOL.
