Tissue Paper Transfer Video!


Hello All!
Today I am sharing with you my newest video. Tissue paper Transfers! Yay! I love creating with these transfers, the variety of images are endless and can be used in all types of projects. You can used them for backgrounds, for layers, for cards, tags, to cover boxes...all kinds of ways. Below is an ATC card I made using a tissue transfer image in the background. I took the images from an vintage women's magazine.


Since creating this video I have realized that I can rub a bit of black Stazon ink on one side of the transparency, just a light coating, and then the printer is able to "see" it better. No need for the extra copy paper sheet. Remember to seal your tissue paper after you print it, both sides. This helps to stop bleeding of the ink when you adhere it to your art work with glue or gel medium. Even then, be careful as you apply it not to rub too much. Test out a little piece of your transfer first, just to see how set the ink is.


Hugs to you all!
Terri

Terri..Your video was great. I'd never seen that 3M film before, but am now on a 'mission' to see if it exists in my neck-of-the-woods. If not, a trip to the big city may be in order.
I can see a zillion uses for the technique. Thanks for your inspiration. You are a doll for sharing it!
Hugs
