Today I am sharing a not so secret, secret to stamping on acetate!! It is really all in the ink!!!
Here are my supplies:
Acetate, Skipping Stones Designs Beautiful Botanicals stamp set, Color Solutions Alcohol Inks by Dreamweaever Stencils, Felt Applicator and protection for my stamped surface.
I cut a 2 by 3 rectangle of acetate.
I applied a few drops of Color Solutions Iceberg Ink to my felt applicator and started adding color to one side of the acetate.
I added a few drops Color Solutions Aspen Leaf Alcohol Ink to the felt applicator and daubed under the first color.
For years I stamped on Acetate, to reveal a black smeared image that I was disappointed in. I was told Memories Ink by Stewart Superior would not smear on Acetate and of course, I had to see it to believe it.
Before stamping on the acetate, you will want to stamp on the side of the acetate that doesn't have alcohol ink on it.
I added Memories Ink to my clear stamp and placed it on my Acetate surface. Low and behold....NO SMEARING!!

Using a rectangle nestabilities die, I cut a rectangle out of the front panel of my card and then another rectangle out of a piece of a bit smaller cardstock. I adhered my stamped acetate in the open rectangle of the front panel. To give the inside a finished look, I adhered the second window panel of cardstock over the edges of acetate.
The finished product....
Thanks for stopping by today!!!
See you next time!!
