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
