Inky Acetate!

Hello!
A lot less messy from me today.... (that doesn't include my hands though, alcohol ink gets EVERYWHERE!)
The bright and colourful strip across my panel is acetate.... put through an embossing folder to get the dots, then coloured with alcohol inks..
Nice technique, and messy enough that those messy crafters amongst us don't get withdrawal symptoms, despite the white space on the project!
The heart (Stampotique) was stamped onto card that I had previously stamped with a very old text stamp from my stash. This was done twice, then I could layer them up to give a little more depth to the piece.
Checkerboard and chevron stamps from my new favourite 7 Dots set, and a rub on from Tim...
*I am deliberately not mentioning the little gluey smudges here and there, have you noticed?!!*
I just CANNOT do clean and simple. At All........ Designing things, yep, keeping things 'clean'? not a chance!!!!
See you soon,
Trish xxx

Gorgeous Trish, I love the contrast of the vibrant alcohol inks with the white of the card.

I can't see the glue. It's ages since I used acetate and alcohol inks

I had quite forgotten how vibrant they are.

Beautiful
