Acrylic Pages - Pages 2 and 4
Remove protective cover from acrylic pages.
On the back side of acrylic page use StazOn Refills and sponge daubers to cover the entire page with various colors. Allow to dry completely.
Stamp on top of the StazOn Refills with Black Versafine. We used the Jumbo Butterflies on page 2 and the Hydrangea on Page 4.
Use a dry paper towel to rub off the VersaFine ink. It will remove the StazOn in those spots leaving the acrylic clear where the stamped image is.
If desired spray the inked side to set it or emboss with clear or crystal powder (this may bend and warp the acrylic a bit)
For additional pages create background paper using the Dahlia stamp and various colored pigment inks. Position over page with holes and cut holes from background paper. Attach paper to chipboard page.
Stamp two small butterflies in black on light orange paper and color with pink highlights. Cut out and assemble with twisted wire antennae.
Place two photos to be seen through holes.
Prepare another background panel using the Dahlia to stamp in dark yellow on a light yellow page. Cover entire chipboard page so that acrylic butterfly stamp shows up against it and dahlia panel covers back of photos.
Assemble book and add ribbons to binder rings.
