Last week I missed watching the Spellbinders Try It Tuesday show. Terre Fry and Ken Oliver were sharing different methods to do an image transfer. I watched the show later and decided to give one technique a try: image transfer with packing tape. Of course, I had to add a little twist! I have oodles of packing tape that I bought on sale from the dollar bins at Michaels, but my tape is pretty!
The technique is very simple. Start with a laser printed photocopy of a picture and cover the front of it with packing tape. You can see that I actually overlapped the tape to get more of the pretty rose image on my photo.
Donna Salazar Canvas ATC from Want2Scrap and added fabric tape, a memo pin, stickers, a postage stamp, metal letters, a die cut label and an index print - Voila! I love how it turned out!
Thanks to Terre and Ken for giving me the push to try this technique!
I will definitely be tuning in to watch Spellbinders Try It Tuesday at 9am PT/12pm ET to see what they have planned for today!
I hope you find some time to play today - maybe try an image transfer! Susie
