Over at JUGS http://justusgirlschallenge.blogspot.com/2011/03/just-us-girls-75-technique-week.html it's technique week, and the technique is Acrylic Smash. I had never tried this before, so therefore I thought I would give it a go.
I used the layout from Sketch #209 at CPS http://cardpositioningsystems.blogspot.com/2011/03/cps-209-part-1.html.
I started with the acrylic piece and built the rest from there. The stamp set Live Life Loud by Gina K was used. Stamped the gradient dot pattern onto the acetate sheet using Stazon Black ink and cut out with a Nesties label die. Cut a piece of white cs with the same Nestie die and smeared orange and yellow craft paint on white cs, placed it against the acetate piece and let dry. Used the same label die for the yellow layer and sponged black ink before removing it from the die. The guitar was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with black ep, colored with Prismacolor markers, cut out and layered over the acrylic smash layer. The music score is from the Gina K Set Vintage Borders. Stamped the score to cover white cs, then sponged on Memento Dandelion, Tangelo and Lady Bug. Thought it looked too light, so sponged black around the edges. Used a strip of Tim Holtz paper tape and stamped the sentiment just below the tape. Layered it all onto the Gina K Wild Dandelion card base.
