Photo Transfer technique + Studio Calico

As you know I showcased on my blog, the Photo Transfer technique a few days ago as seen in the CK Mixed Media Scrapbooking, vol. 2. It was part of the blog hop to promote the CK blog hop. 

I thought I'd show you another take on the same technique with different outcome.

Photo transfer Technique using clear packing tape:

Step#1- Print your photo onto regular printer paper using a color laser printer.

Step#2- Cover the surface with clear packing tape or shelf plastic, & trim off excess paper.

Step#3- Soak in water until completely saturated.

Step#4- Turn image over and keeping the paper wet, gently rub off the backing paper with your finger. You will be left with a transparent image of your photo. 

Here is a close up of how the woodgrain paper creates awesome texture beneath my transparent photo.

These are the kits I used to create this page:
