General Techniques

Acetate Resist by April Williams


  1. Acetate or Plastic from a container
  2. Alcohol Ink (sample uses Purple Twilight)
  3. Ink Applicator
  4. Paisley Florals Stamp
  5. Jet Black Archival Ink Pad
  6. Paper Towel or Cloth
  7. Spellbinders' Heart Die
  8. White Glossy Cardstock
  9. Xyron Machine

Cut a square piece of plastic a little larger than your heart die.  Put several dots of alcohol ink on the ink applicator and pounce all over the plastic.  Let dry.

Ink up the Paisley Floral stamp with the Jet Black Archival ink and stamp several times on the alcohol inked side of the plastic.  Archival black ink is the only ink that will work with this technique.  Immediately wipe off the black ink using a paper towel or cloth.  You will see clear areas where the black ink once was.

Run the plastic piece through the Xyron machine to adhere it to glossy card stock.  The glossy card stock helps the images show up better.  Cut out the heart shape using the heart die.

Here is another card using the window left by the die cut heart shape.
