Hey there everybody!! Laura here today! Have you ever tried using acrylic to
create a card? I have one to share with you today with some fun techniques too!
I wanted to make sure you could see the cool effect of the acrylic!
This is the acrylic piece with the alcohol inks applied. It's a unique
background, no two turn out the same! Fun to watch as you dab
the colors on the acrylic piece! And the cardstock color you choose
to go behind it will change the look like you can see in this photo:
The cute Witches Hat Shaker is one of the NEW shakers available!
I created this cute shaker by painting the top layer with black acrylic
paint, and while it dried, I traced the shape out of some purple distressed
looking patterned paper, then cut it out and glued it to the base piece. I glued
on the other layers, but before I glued on the acrylic layer and the top painted
frame, I added a few sequins and beads, then I tied on a little ribbon bow.
The sentiment I printed off my computer and trimmed it into a banner,
then matted it and used foam tape to adhere it to the card front.
If you look closely, there IS a little more to that front acrylic piece.
The random black damask pattern was created using the Clear Scraps
6" Damask stencil. It's a nice touch for a Halloween card, I added
just a bit here and there using some black chalkboard paint for a
nice matte effect, and then the edges were brushed using the same
paint, applied using a foam brush.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
