There was some chat going on the Craftsupplies forum earlier about photo transfer images and Mary suggested using clear packing tape to transfer your image, so I gave it a try and here is the result. The crocus is the transfer image and you can see how the text is visible through the magazine image. This was a first attempt so I am sure more practice would give even better results .
Method used: choose your image from a magazine ,stick the wide clear sellotape over the image and rub down, Soak in hot water for a minute, remove and with your finger rub off the backing paper, dry and that is it .
To make up the finished card I applied ink directly to the atc ,stamped over the base with a text stamp using stazon then applied the transferred image with vellum glue roller.After I glued the transfer image to the ATC I rubbed it with some fine sandpaper ( As suggested by MM ) to take the gloss off, it makes it blend in much better.The ATC on the left is my second attempt and it worked out fine too.
