More acetate...

Having been playing with acetate recently I thought I would invest in some printable inkjet acetate to see what I could do with it.

Here is my first attempt.


I chose a Pink Petticoat flourish design just to see what it would look like. The design has to be printed on the rough side of the acetate, and although my printer does not have a transparency setting, I used the "ultra glossy" setting and it printed out perfectly. I stamped a Heidi Swapp sentiment underneath on to the white card and that was it!
Really simple, but I really like the effect. Will have to play some more with this idea me thinks!
