10 Things - Transparencies

Today's 10 Things is all about that stuff we can't see, and using it with the stuff we can. Vellum, transparencies and clear embellishments got you stumped? Have a look at these fantastic ideas!

 1. Trap some good stuff. 
Practical Scrapper Charissa stitched a transparency onto her layout to create a pocket for confetti and glitter for a fun and interactive element.

2. Cut it out.
Practical Scrapper Linda used a key cut from a transparency sheet as an embellishment. She also used clear buttons here and there on the layout.

3. Create a false window.
Practical Scrapper Karen used permanent ink to stamp a bracket frame on the transparency and then embossed the flowers for her sophisticated sympathy card.

 4. Die cut it.
Practical Scrapper Lisa die cut her butterfly from transparency using her Cricut. She added some paint strokes to the back of the transparency and layered it on top of  patterned butterflies giving the wings  a textured and glossy look.

5.Colour it.
Practical Scrapper Lanette created a stained glass card using a transparency and gel pens.

6. Make it a base.
Practical Scrapper Sarah used a transparency to create a clear card.  By placing layers on both the inside and the outside of the card, she was able to create a fun, 3D effect on a clean and simple card.

7. Help them fly. Practical Scrapper Kenya used transparency scraps to give the butterflies a floating effect. 

8. Layer it up.
Practical Scrapper Kelly Jean fussy-cut onsies from a Hambly Screen Prints transparency and backed them with patterned paper to create a banner for her card.

9. Add some shine.
Practical Scrapper Leslii Wagner used clear bottle cap embellishments on each of the outer circles of her hand drawn flower.

10. Stamp it.
Practical Scrapper Erin stamped her butterflies onto vellum using Staz On, and then coloured the reverse side using Copic Markers.
