My friend, Caprice, showed me how to use markers to color images that have been stamped on acetate (we used transparencies for the photocopier). Staz-On ink works best and we colored on the non-stamped side to prevent smearing. It's a lot different than blending on cardstock because the colors lift rather than blend so it takes a little practice to figure out how to make the colors work. I used Bic markers for the image on this card. I cut out the marquee using Nestabilities Labels and then embossed with Divine Swirls and inked with VersaMagic chalk ink. I adhered the acetate with my ATG and then added a mat to the back. For the second image (and my first effort), I used Copics. One thing about coloring on acetate, if you're unhappy with the results, you can lift off the colors and start again. Thanks, Caprice, for a great tutorial :) I plan on adding colored acetate images to my stash for those last minute cards.
I hope you'll visit tomorrow. It will be my first post as a Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog design team member. I can't wait to show you my card. Then you can hop over to FCCB and join in the fun.
