Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

I’ve been playing with digi stamps, acetate and glitter again! Here is the first in a series of glittered acetate projects using The Stamping Boutique and Michelle Perkett Studio digital stamps.

The technique is not hard, you just need some patience and attention to detail. Here’s how to do it…

Print a digital stamp on acetate. I use a laser printer and laser transparencies. Using a fine tip on a Crystal Lacquer bottle (the tips are sold separately), choose the first color and sections of the image that you want to be that color, and add Crystal Lacquer to that area on the dull side (back). If you have text, mirror the image before printing. Sprinkle on the glitter and shake off any excess. Repeat until the image has the amount of color and glitter for the design. Set aside and let it dry.

When it’s dry, cut to size. Brush the glittered side with a soft goat hair brush to remove excess glitter. Drop small amounts of lacquer on top of the glitter and adhere to backing paper. Usually white or cream works well to set off the glitter and detailed image. Embellish and you’re done!
