See through bottles - FB live recording

Hi there and happy new week! It's just a couple of days left of May and then it's June time. That's a summer month and vacation month, but at least June seems to be quite normal here in the blog. The only exception is near Midsummer when there's not going to be a process video published. But other wise there should be project on Tuesday and Wednesday and then a process videos on Fridays.

But let's stay in May still. Today I'm blogging the Facebook live recording. I kept this some weeks ago and in my mother tongue, Finnish. I made some transparent ATCs using acetate (an overhead projector transparency) as my base. As you can hear from  the recording underneath, I mainly babbled in Finnish, but perhaps the images say a thousand words! In case they don't, please ask for clarifications! 

I was playing with the idea of transparency a little in these. As I made ATCs I needed to have a solid layer as well so the info could be added behind the card. But I used the acetate as the background and added another layer on top as well. As it's plastic, I needed to use a medium fitting such an nonabsorbing surface. As you could see from the recording, I used alcohol inks but you could use liquid acrylics as well or them alcohol based markers and blending solution! In case you want to check the used materials, here's the link to the announcement post (link), where I've included the complete list. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Wishing you a splendid week! Oh and like always, these cards are available for swaps or just to be sent out should you want one! Please send me an email or a DM in Instagram in that case!

Materials: Sizzix, PaperArtsy, Ranger, Tim Holtz
