I had to laugh when I saw this... my nemesis is the alcohol... (stamping, not drinking) I tried it several times years ago and finally gave up. I think there is a tutorial for it using a snowflake, and mine NEVER turned out remotely like the tutorial. Oh well.
As for the magic cards, it was hard to get the acetate stamped to start, but after a few tries, I found that stamping the acetate, when you first place the stamp down, don't press. I was using staz-on ink, and once I gave it a moment, then I could press down (I have to stand up to make sure I am pressing down instead of at an angle), and then carefully pull up the stamp.
As for the Zindorf cards... I think she is the only one to make them! I have done one and it took a lot of time sponging to get a similar effect. A LOT of time. Worth it, but I haven't attempted another one since.
I haven't tried either bleach or soot. I am curious now...
