I Challenge You Wednesday - Transparencies

I picked the challenge for this week -- it's a challenge using transparencies --- click here for complete details.
The short version is this:
  1. Stamp your image using StazOn ink onto a transparency
  2. Cut out and run through (ink side down) a sticker maker 
  3. Stick image to desired piece of designer paper (don't use double-sided)
  4. Immerse into cold water for a few seconds
  5. Gently rub off wet paper
  6. Part of the paper image will remain -- you now have a transparent/printed image to use on your card!
Alternate directions say you can use packing tape if you don't have a transparency or lack a sticker maker.
There's a beautiful example of that here!

I had fun with this new-to-me technique and here are the two cards I completed using it:
Card #1
Supplies used:
  • DP - Classics (K & Company)
  • Flower Stamp (Autumn Leaves)
  • Black StazOn ink
  • Background and Beyond Script Stamp (Creative Stamping)
  • Square Punch
  • Cream Lace
  • Burgundy Ribbon
  • Tan Ribbon done up in the "ruffled ribbon" way
  • Script Embossing folder
  • Tan Ink (inked over embossing)
Card #2
Supplies used:
  • Butterfly Fancy (Creative Stamping)
  • Square Punch
  • Background and Beyond Script Stamp (Creative Stamping)
  • DP - Classics (K & Company)
  • Yellow Ribbon
  • Black Felt Tip Pen (Faux Stitching)
Now go here to see what my friend came up using this "new" technique.

Those are lovely! The butterflies are my favorite - they look like something straight out of a magazine. :)

I'll have to try it with transparencies now. I didn't realize you put the printed side down in the sticker maker. Now you have me curious! :)
