Hi Everyone! It is time for Technique Tuesday once again at Sparkle N Sprinkle! Today I want to show you a striking background technique using acetate, an embossing folder and metallic markers! Here is the card I made with the background.
- embossing folder with large designs
- metallic markers ( I used Marvy )
- white gel pen
- black glossy or matte card stock ( I used glossy )
Place the piece of acetate in the embossing folder and run through an embossing machine.
Turn over the embossed acetate and color in the indented areas with the metallic markers. You may want to try different brands. They will need to be opaque. Another crafter said that they used Crayola metallic markers and that they did well. Now go in and use the white gel pen in outline and dotted areas. You can sort of see the white in the picture.
Turn the acetate over and adhere it to the black card stock. See how the colors pop? That is all it is to it! I hope you enjoy trying this technique. Have fun!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
