Alcohol Ink technique - Part 2

Ok today another way to use those alcohol inks - on Acetate.
Take a piece of acetate and then take your alcohol inks and put say 3 colors onto the alcohol ink tool and pounce it over the acetate until you are happy with the color. Allow to dry. You can stamp directly then onto the acetate if you wish. I would recommend using Staz on and stamp on the opposite side to what you used the alcohol ink on. Alternatively you can use the acetate to cover a stamped image which is what I did with this card shown here.
Materials: Cream cardstock, acetate, gold cardstock, black cardstock, Penny black scroll vellum,Cream textured cardstock, black fibers, 4 gold brads, gold krylon pen, rhinestones, word charm, Great Impressions dragonfly stamp, stickles glitter glue, Alcohol inks and tool.
Method: Fold cream cardstock in half.Add strip of foiled vellum and patterned textured cream cardstock strip down the left hand side of cardfront as shown. Take a piece of acetate and prepare it using alcohol inks as described above and leave to dry. On a piece of cream cardstock stamp dragonfly image and fill in areas of wings using Stickles glitter glue and allow to dry completely. Take dry alcohol inked acetate and attach it to the dragonfly image using gold brads and then attach to gold cardstock and then wrap black fibers around and then attach black cardstock. Attach piece to cardfront as shown. Add rhinestones and word charm.
The card unfortunately hasn't photographed that well - its actually much prettier in real life when you can see the glimmer from the Stickles showing through the alcohol ink piece.
