Have you ever made glassine paper? I remember doing this years ago, but tried it again using a couple of different types of paper. The plan was to use the paper in some Valentine tags - These tags are oversized a bit -- as I didn't want to lose any of the detail in the images.
The article with most of the details can be found on the Artistry here.
Rather than stamp images I decided to print on the papers.... I used tracing paper and tissue paper as my test mediums... The prints came out as expected. The tissue paper image colors are a little diffused and the tracing paper image is much brighter. I used SCAL 6 Pro as my editing program to size and print from while using the png images from Creative Fabrica.
I didn't antique either paper before printing or afterwards. Once the printing was completed, I finished the process by adding the wax and loving the change in the look of each of the papers.
These were really fun to make and I have some ideas for some other versions I'd like to try in the next couple of months. We'll see how that rolls out! LOL
The tags were created in SCAL 6 Pro using several steps... it's important to have your tag just the way your want it before going to the next step. Once the tag was ready, I placed an image on the mat, placed the tag on top and used Clip Path > Set Clip Path and printed the tags and cut them using the Skycut C24.
Details for assembling the tags is in the article -- found here.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you've carved out some creative time this week and month. Nurture your creative spirit any way you feel you must.
