Acetate and Tissue

So, I debated all day whether or not to post this card. I wasn't sure what I really thought about it, still not actually. But it was my husband who convinced me to post it.

I made the image piece using the Acetate and Tissue technique on SCS. I was looking for something new to try. I like the technique, just not sure that I like the colors I used. Have any of you ever tried this technique? What color ink did you choose?

To complete this card card I used the direct to paper technique to create a background on the Soft Sky piece and then I paper pierced faux stitching along the edges. I'd love to hear your opinions about this acetate and tissue card. Thanks for looking, have a great night. Happy Stamping!! :)

Wow!!!!! This is really pretty!!!! I've never tried this technique but might have to. This is really, really, really gorgeous.

Denise, your card is Absolutely Gorgeous!! I think the colors are beautiful!! I have done this technique several times and taught it at stamping classes too. It's a technique that has the WOW factor! I know there are a few versions of this technique, the one I have done is with future floor cleaner, acetate & tissue. Something that is fun to try, stamp the image several times and then try all kinds of color combos. Also using different colors of background can totally change the look.
Once again--Beautiful Job!!

One more thing you can also add pearl-ex or perfect pearls to give it a pretty shimmer. HTH! ;)
