Image Transfer ATC's

I have just completed another 3 ATC's using the packing tape image transfer method. I chose images from glossy magazines and transferred them onto clear adhesive packing tape by burnishing the tape thouroughly over the chosen image. I cut out the taped images and soaked in water for a few minutes then with my fingers 'rubbed' off the softened paper from the adhesive side of the tape until no more remained. I then allowed the images to dry and then adhered them (they were still adhesive) to the ATC card background. You may need to use a clear adhesive such as glossy accents if they don't retain their own adhesive qualities. I have then used various techniques to enhance the images with backing papers, permanent markers, gesso, pearly doodles and chalk inkpads. The words were all stamped with black Stazon.
