Stamping Tutorial with Acrylic Spray

Hi everyone! Today I am  going to be showing you how to use acrylic spray with your stamping to give your project it a porcelain sheen!

First, I set the stayzon black ink on my background stamp. Some helpful tips; Push the ink pad into the stamp, not the stamp into the ink pad. Use a stamp pad or place a few sheets of printer paper (or lightweight paper) underneath the Paper you are stamping to give it a little cushioning. For the large background stamps, I use my cuttlbug C Adapter and to apply even and a lot of pressure, I stand on the stamp. Peel off your stamp.   

Maintenence of stamps - If your stamp gets fibers in the crevices, it will not give the clearest image possibe. Baby wipes, though a good fix quickly, leave fibers in your stamps. Try washing with mild soap and luke warm water. I lay image down on a paper towell to dry, with no blotting. This will give you a crisp clear image!!

Spray with Clear Acrylic Spray, then cut to size once dry. I adhered the rhinestones on this project after spraying {Don't Spray after you adhere the rhinestones, it will make them Dull}. It will take a coat or too, apply evenly and thoroughly. It will take on a porcelain appearance!
Layer all of your peices for the card and adhere together

I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and layered with the peices from the layers in the card for the flag. Cut the Tips with a Square punch to shape the flags, and popped the top layer with pop dots.
