Acetate Card with Mary Catt

Hi there lovelies! It’s Mary here with you today and I have an acetate card to share with you. I always love to try new techniques and this time I tried to create a card on acetate sheet with a watercolor effect using Lindy’s sprays.  Well, let’s see – let me show you how I created.

I started by applying soft gloss gel on the background of the sheet. This way, I create texture and the sprays are be more stable on it.

The sprays I used are the Delphinium Turquoise,  Baby Blue Eyes Aqua, Tilt-a-Wheel Teal and  Blue Hawaiian Blue. When I was satisfied with the result I let it dry naturally.

While I was waiting for the sprays to dry, I heat embossed the Leafy Shrub Set (3 chipboard pieces) with the Lindy’s Spring Leaf Chartreuse embossing powder.

The title was also heat embossed with the Midnight Gold and the Fishing Net Bits chippies with  Bratwurst Brown embossing powder.

When everything was glued down, I added some shells along with art stones and made some splashes with white acrylic artists ink to finish off the piece.

Here are some close-ups so you can see all the details.

 

I have also made a video tutorial with the procedure. You can watch it here or on the Lindy’s Stamp Gang YouTube Channel.
