...more Transparency Transfers, Shrink Plastic atc's

Below are some more Transparency Transfers...first one is onto another plain type of background, paper that has been coloured using the "smoosh" technique of Ranger distress inks onto the Ranger craft sheet dtp (direct to paper...or dts...direct to sheet!), spritz with water, lay your paper down onto the spritzed sheet, press gently and then twist 45 degrees and lift....result is a beautiful watercoloured background. The colours on this is my favourite combo of Peeled Paint and Weathered Wood. Then an inkjet transparency/rubbing alcohol transfer on top and another quote from Dorothy Parker.


Some more transparency transfers..."Temptress"



..."Arise"....




Now a couple of atc's using shrink plastic as I have another class on this tonight at Scraptivate....this first one is a terrible scan, sorry 'bout that....you just about need sunglasses to look at it in the flesh and yes, it's not my usual colours once again...can you say BRIGHT!!! The image down the bottom left is the shrink plastic stamped image and then coloured with chalks, boy do they intensify when it's shrunk!!!

Don't send the spelling police after me.....I forgot to change the spelling of "color" from the US spelling to the Aussie version - "colour" on the quote....



Another shrink plastic atc, this time the image was printed onto the shrink plastic (white) with my inkjet printer, then shrunk...you just have to keep your fingers off the ink as it'll smudge until it's shrunk. "Awaken...breathe"...


Lastly, this is an atc made for a swap leaving here shortly (promise!!!) to someone over East. It's a watercolour tube paint fresco technique with one of my favourite zetti stamps.
