Clear Tape Transfer

Hi all,
You've seen some other similar tutorials about how to transfer an image using clear tape.
This is how I do it.

Clear Tape
A page from an old book, newspaper or any photocopied image.
Base cardstock . What I use here is a scrap of a "gessoed" cardstock from a previous project.

Cut and stick a piece of tape over the page. The pressure you must apply depends on the thickness of the paper.

Lift the tape up carefully.
What we want here is to stick on the tape only one layer of the page, the one with the text.

Wet the side of the paper And start rubbing until only the letters remain in the tape

The tape will already remains a bit sticky. Just enough to adhere to the cardstock.

This is my finished ATC.

You can also use this technique with images, like I did here.

Hope you like it.
I'd love to see your creations with this technique.
Thanks for stopping by. You're invited to visit me at Hecho a mano
