first card using the Acetate and Tissue technique. The layer with Happy birthday is whisper white with craft brocade blue and ballet blue brayered over it. Cut with wave scissors. Go easy on me. Thanks for looking!

Good job with this technique. I posted one in my gallery earlier this week. I find it's hard to not use too much ink with this one, but you did well! did you use a Q-Tip or something to apply the ink or did you just drop it on the crystal effects?

Thanks so much for your comments! actually i kinda did this one backwards...
I stamped the fish with black staz-on on the acetate. flipped it over then dabbed the tip of the reinker against where I wanted the color to go. Then I drizzled little drops of crystal effects. smudged the colors in the fish first then smudged the colors around the edges. The hardest part was getting the tissue paper "flat" without pushing out the colors. Hope this helps!
