Just Believe and the Acrylic Sheet Technique....

Here's a card I made for a recent workshop using a technique where you color on an acrylic sheet using the markers. 

Here's how to do the acrylic sheet technique:
  1. Take a piece of an acrylic sheet at least a couple of inches larger than your cardstock.
  2. Color on the acrylic sheet at the bottom about 2" high with the Old Olive marker.
  3. Then color above that using More Mustard but only about a 1/2" high area.
  4. Then color above that using the Pool Party marker but again, just an 1/2" high area.
  5. Finish coloring to the top using the Marina Mist marker.
  6. Spritz with water several times until the colors just begin to meld together.
  7. Lay your paper down on top of the acrylic sheet.
  8. Take your piece of tissue paper and press down so it absorbs any of the water and ink that does not transfer to your cardstock.
  9. Remove tissue and turn over your cardstock to see the result - gorgeous!
Here's what you will need to make this card:

  • Certainly Celery, Whisper White and Pool Party cardstock
  • Black StazOn ink
  • Old Olive, More Mustard, Pool Party and Marina Mist markers
  • Just Believe, Thoughts & Prayers and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets
  • Acrylic Sheet
  • Tissue Paper
  • Water in misting bottle
  • Pool Party Seam Binding Ribbon
  • Old Olive 1/8" ribbon
  • Printed Brad
  • Corner Ticket punch
  • Lacy Brocade embossing folder
