Technique Class #2 - Acetate & Tissue

Here is the second technique of the year with two variations on the card.  It's a fairly messy process but the results are well worth it. After doing just two of these I would recommend the following: 

1.) Cut your acetate or window sheet larger than you think you need it to be.  The reason for doing this is to keep the crystal effects from bleeding over the edge.  You want to keep the stamped side as pristine and glass like as possible.  You can always trim it down.

2.) Less is more.  Use just a few drops of color into a reasonable amount of crystal effects. Remember you're going to lay tissue paper on top and then a piece of card stock so you don't want a goopy mess.  You will need to experiment.

(Instructions below.)
