Opaque, yet clear to me!

StazOn ink has long been the "go-to" inkpad for stamping on non-porous surfaces.  Several years ago, Tsukineko created an ink called StazOn Opaque.  On clear surfaces like acetate, the opaque ink provided much better coverage than the thinner solvent ink of the original StazOn.  It gave the stamped images an almost raised appearance.  However, the Opaque ink pads only came in pastel colors and white.  Finally, Tsukineko released brown and black StazOn Opaque pads, and they are fantastic!  Stop in Tuesday between 12 & 2 and give them a try.  We'll stamp this lovely wreath stamp by Memory Box onto acetate, then fill in the berries with Viva Decor's Glass Effects Gel - a transparent gel made specifically for glass, acetate and other clear surfaces.  Oh, and did I mention it's dishwasher safe?  So much to try, so don't miss out!!!  See you Tuesday!
