Transparency

Created for Mixed Media Monday. The theme is Transparencies. The background is tea Dye Distress ink, stamped with a French script in Vintage Photo, and edged also with Vintage Photo. The transparency was heated at the edges with a heat gun to make them curl and weather. It was attached to a piece of muslim cloth that was dyed with tea dye ink, and stamped with the same script as the background. Two tiny gold brads hold the image in place. The cloth was also attached to a piece of white card to provide stability. A german scrrap border and letter stickers were added to embellish.
