Baby

Howdy!  I can't believe it is Wednesday already. I have been playing around with different projects and struggling a bit with finishing projects.  I wanted to try tape transfers of old photos as I had seen a project that was beautiful using a transferred image.

 I had a few pre-printed photos that I had scanned and copied onto cardstock. I pulled them out and used packing tape to cover them and then rubbed off the back of the paper with baby wipes.  I laid the baby wipes onto the cardstock and let it soak in.  I then rubbed off the cardstock using my finger.

 I had taken a page from a book and cut it to the tag shape.  I painted the surface with a touch of white paint.   After it had dried I placed my baby image onto the painted background.  I stamped the butterflies in blue ink and cut them out and attached them with the little crystals.  I stamped the sentiment and cut it out and placed it along the side.

Have a great day!
