Transparent ATCs

Lisa Vollrath's always giving the Ten Two Studios design team interesting challenges. This time I used clear ATC blanks with vintage silhouette images from the Shadow Life collage sheet and text from Spirit Words. I made contact paper transparencies with the images and text and colored the clear ATC blanks with alcohol ink.
Messing With Alcohol Ink - March 21, 2010
I had originally planned to glue the contact paper image transfer to the colored back using Aleene's paper glaze (because I couldn't find my Diamond Glaze), but I learned that when you stick something wet between two non-porous plastic surfaces, it stays wet for a loooooong time. So I ended up sealing the edges with aluminum foil tape cut with decorative scissors and colored with more alcohol ink!

I made six cards for trade at the Milwaukee Artist Trading Card group's March meeting last weekend. You can see the whole set here

Thanks, Terri! And they're so easy to make (once you get past the squishy glue problem :o)
