Acetate Tissue Paper Technique Technique Page

It's about time I post another technique page and what better way to display it than with the card Sue A. made for the DIVA shoebox swap!

Her card was a big hit on DIVA Day! It's such an awesome technique too. And it's fairly easy to do. I have not tried it yet but will be after I submit this post. I plan on doing mine in blues to work it in with a Christmas/winter (maybe snowman) theme! Wish me luck! I'll just follow the instructions given to me and posted on here for you!

This is another page in the 4th set of Technique Pages. I have other techniques about ready to post soon too but I've had so many other fun things going on that I have not been able to squeeze them in. But trust me, they are coming!

Ok, onto this technique. You need the following items: tissue paper, Window Sheets, inkers, Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds (optional but such a pretty touch it adds), oh and rubber gloves are nice to have too!

Pour some Crystal Effects on your Window Sheet. Drop some inker colors around the sheet. With your fingers move the Crystal Effects and inkers around on the sheet until it is covered. Add some Dazzling Diamonds if desired. Cover the Window Sheet with the tissue paper and allow to dry. You can heat set it but be careful, the base of this is a plastic Window Sheet. It's just best to let it dry naturally. That's it. It's more of a "how patient can you be" type technique, since you have to wait for it to dry. It's best to do it at night and in the morning it's ready to play with! Have fun with it. I'd LOVE to see what you do with it!

This technique will be on a 6" x 6" piece of card stock as were all of the other techniques. I am just showing a finished item using the technique.

There are still a few technique pages left for sale plus they are on CD for you to print out to hold Technique Club with. Each CD also contains a photo of the finished technique page to copy or for reference. Click here to see the sets.
edited on 11-23-10: The window sheet side is facing up. The piece was taped in place on the tissue paper side.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

I love the card. For some odd reason thanksgiving is always a hard card making holiday for me.

Wondered if you use the window side out or the tissue side out when you make you card - can't tell from the picture!
