PTI June Blog Hop:Transparencies


Its Blog Hop night! Here is my first card for the transparency challenge this month.
I ran my transparency through my Cuttlebug. I then inked the transparency and heat set the ink. Too much fun!!
For my second card, I stamped on the front of the transparency card and placed the sentiment and bands of paper on the inside.
I thought the stamp looked like a heart so the sentiment would work well. The image was colored in with alcohol inks. (cotton swab applicator)
Hopefully you are inspired! Make sure and check out the blogs linked on the right side------>
Many of them are PTI'ers who will have some fabulous ideas! thanks for stopping by!
