Good Monday morning! I’m Joyce and I’m thrilled to bring you today’s Project of the Week for Repeat Impressions.
Have you ever picked up a stamp and instantly know exactly what you’re going to do with it? That what I felt when I saw this Repeat Impression’s image – Bats – 2308-E. I just knew I was going to stamp this on acetate.
That is exactly where I started this project – by stamping the image on acetate. Now, I know that not everyone has acetate on hand, so an inexpensive substitute is to use clear packaging from product you have purchased recently. I used a cover from a box of scrapbooking paper that I had purchased. You can use any flat piece of clear packaging that is large enough for the project you are creating.
The trick of working on a project like this is to find a way hide any adhesives. I find that sandwiching the acetate between lays of paper works the best for this. Using a double stick tape is the best way to secure things in place. I’ve secured a solid color card stock to the underside of the acetate and printed paper on the top side. The printed paper is just a smidge shorter to create a matted look.
Sandwiching the acetate in this way creates a clean, finished look on both the front side and back side of your project.
Now, it’s time to decorate the card. The sentiment is Repeat Impressions Boo!-2316.
I hope you get a chance to try this very simple technique to give your project a very special and unique look.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
