Transparent Chicks

No, this isn't some freak of nature....this is our challenge this week! We're using Clear Sheets/Transparency, that's the Product Spotlight at Cornish Heritage Farms.

Mine is a clear sheet folded in half just like regular cardstock. I masked the center with an oval piece of copy paper and stamped Sophisticated Swirls Backgrounder in Stazon Olive Green.

For the inside, I took the 'negative' of the oval (the piece the oval was cut from) and placed it so it matched the Clear Sheet front and stamped the daisies (colored with copics) and sentiment. It still needed a little defining, so I just grabbed my dauber (the one used for 'greens') and used whatever ink was left on it sponging from the mask inward.

This piece was then taped to the inside....which of course meant you could see the tape on the backside of the card. Easily fixed by just taping a piece of white over the back giving it a 'finished' look.

Be sure to see what the other girls did too by clicking on their names.
