Try it Tuesday - Easy Transparency

Here is my experiment for this week’s Try it Tuesday challenge. First, I made a high contrast black and white image of an old picture of my Grandmom, scanned it and ran it through the laser printer. Then I transferred it to clear packing tape as per the directions. I cut a floral motif from an old gift bag and glued the transparent image on that with soft gel medium. I then glued everything on an old scrap of painted lutradur. I painted matte medium over the top to cut the shine down on the transparency and added a little embroidery and some beads - just for fun…

Love it, still trying to work out how the transparent tape thing works tho? I'm not following. (or did I miss this on a tutorial somewhere?
