Smaking' Acetate is a technique from the Technique Junkies newsletter at patstamps.com. Basically you scribble with markers on a pieces of transparancy (aka window sheet (SU's term) or "acetate"). Spritz it with water to make the colors run a bit and then "smack" your piece of cardstock on the acetate so it picks up the colors. Easy background and can get lots of different color combinations.
