Challenge #5

Please click on the picture for a better view.

Larger Image Nellie and Marianne has some beautiful prints that are like magazine pictures.  So, I did the following steps to transfer the picture to cardstock. 
1.  Cut out the picture
2.  Cut out the same size from Elizabeth Craft Transfer Sheet
3.  Lay this on top and burnish it with your finger. 
4.  Spritz water onto the back of the Vintage image. Let it soak a bit and then start carefully rubbing with your finger to remove the paper.  Be very careful not to dig into the picture.    Make sure all the paper is remove before moving to the next step.
5.  Lay the picture down onto cardstock and burnish. Make sure it is totally adhered to the card stock before removing the transfer sheet.  Cut the card stock larger than the picture so it can be cut with a die. 
6.  Cut with a decorative die that is the shape you want for the card.

LOL ... I JUST noticed I used the exact same image as you did Joan! Of all the different images I have I can't believe I picked this particular one! I guess she must have spoke to me as she did you! LOL

Thank you for the challenge - I had no transfer paper so I hope it was ok to just use a picture - I have a huge hoard of these! You have such a lovely example.
