I minored in Art Education in college so this reminded me of an ancient technique called Reverse Painting. But his art was slightly modified. So as a teacher, I thought I'd share a link with you...If you would like to learn a little art history. CLICK HERE to learn more.
When I observed his work, all I could think of was my stamping. I knew this ancient technique could be a stamper's dream so I tried using clear acetate, StazOn ink, my stamps and of course, acrylic paints.
I created two different cards with the same materials- just a twist on the layout and a few additonal elements. I used Mixed Greetings because not only does it have some great sentiments in various fonts, it also has some adorable icon images (like the cupcake) that is perfect for cards.
I first tried this technique five years ago and I love it! I challenge you to give it a try! If you create something with this technique, please share! I'd love to see it!!!
PS... Older StazOn works best on acetate. It slides less, is more tacky and creates a crisper image. I had to get some new StazOn this week and it is VERY juicy so the images are less than prime this time. I'm a bit disappointed.
