Thurday Tutorial - Ahoy Matey!

This is a fun technique using ordinary tissue paper, Ranger Paint Dabber and acetate. I know it has a special name but I have no idea what it is at this time so just why not just gather up the supplies and have fun with it.
Ahoy Matey!
Stamp credits:
Playful Posh Pirates EZMount stamp set #POSH-53 (SI)
Distress ink re-inkers – dusty concord, mustard seed
Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber Pearl
Diamond Glaze dimensional adhesive
Stickles Crystal Glitter
White tissue paper

1.On a piece of acetate drop a few drops of dusty concord & mustard seed Distress reinkers leaving space between each drop of ink.

2.Add two dime size puddles of Diamond Glaze dimensional adhesive next to the inks.

3.Gently spread the inks and glaze with your finger. If you don't want your finger to get inky and sticky you can use a rubber glove. Do not over mix or the colors will become muddy.

4.While the inks and glaze are still wet sprinkle crystal glitter over the piece.

5.Cut a piece of white tissue larger than inked acetate. Crumble the tissue paper, flatten out leaving some of the wrinkles. The wrinkles add to the dimension of the piece.

6.Place the wrinkled tissue paper over the inked acetate. Allow to air dry completely.

7.After dry flip it over.

8.Ink up Pirate with Adirondack Acrylic Pearl paint dabber. Start by dabbing paint onto stamp then smooth out any big puddles of paint. Place the inked stamp carefully onto acetate and remove the stamp from the acetate. Stamping on acetate can be tricky because it is a slippery surface just remember not to move around the stamp or the image will be smudged & blurry. Try to have a firm grip on stamp and remove straight up off the acetate. Repeat process for saying.

9.Allow the painted images to air dry completely before continuing.

10. Layer stamped acetate onto piece of white (3 ¾ x 5) cardstock, black (4 x 5 ¼) cardstock then onto white folded card.
