My Fathers Day ATC

Well , how bad am I ? I said I'd post this the next day , that was 19 days ago ! Just been sooo busy. Anywho it's here now. I hope you can see it clearly, I wanted to do a lil momento of me and my Da so I had some pics of me and me and him photo copied. ( You need a printer that uses a separate toner , I discovered this after a lot of failed attempts ! So I had mine done at the printers. )
So I distressed my ATC with Tim Holtz inks and a blending tool and stamped some clock images I had on there to .
Then the fun part, I transferred the photo copy image to my ATC by blotting over the image with the ATC behind using acetone ( you do need to protect your surfaces when you do this ) the acetone reacts with the toner and the ink is released onto your card below ! WOW ! It's a fabby technique particularly if you want a aged effect .The piece of card in the bottom left is actually Tim Holtz Grunge paper and looks so old now was perfect for this effect .

Any way this technique has been done many times by crafters more experienced than me and I know if you google "image transfers with acetone" you will get video demos and a much more detailed explanation than mine !
I'm gonna sign off now as it's way past my bed time , have a great week !


  1. I was wondering if you were ok...I am glad you are and happy to see your new technique. I hoped you had fun plying with it and make many more because practice makes perfect...with me is never perfect but... that is the saying, lol.

  2. Thank you for your kind words :-) Have a great week !
