Acetate Flowers - SDC31

It's time for another Stampotique ONLY Challenge at the SDC Blog.  This week Willy is the hostess and she's challenging you to use your Stampotique images with Acetate.  I had a lot of different ideas floating around for acetate - Smackin' Acetate, Shaker Cards, Embossing Acetate, Clear Cards, but I wanted to try something different.  In a past issue of The Technique Junkie Newsletter, there was a tutorial for Acetate Flowers - I never tried the technique, so I gave it a go.  I'm thrilled with the outcome.  I did morph the tech a bit, as I applied Alcohol Inks to my acetate.

I used the Mojo Monday Sketch along with some fabby papers from My Minds Eye.  The Stampotique sentiment can be found here.  I stamped the Honeycomb Background in Coffee Archival on the Acetate and added some Ranger Espresso Acrylic Paint before heating the acetate.
