Wvwer try this? It can be addictive.,

You find an image in a magazine, a calendar, any thing you can lift off the imaage by using the tape for sealing enveelopes or packages with (clear).

You place it on the image, smooth it out good, pressing it as you do with either a letter opener, back of spoon, you get the picture.

Cut around the tape then immerse the tape in some warm water waiting about as long as you can, take it out of water and start to rub the wet paper back off and your image remains on the transfer tape.

Then when dry it may be sticky again and you place the image on an ATC. Use a background ATC to enhance the look. Get all the paper off back and your tape image can look translucent. Important to rub that back of tape off.

Google Transfer Tape Images if you need more instructions. There is a Public swap up now that I asked if okay to use similar swap for our group. Common courtesy!! Questions?

Group rules as usual. This is so much fun and easy to do we will do two for one swapper. I tried photos but backing to thick, but try whatever you like.

Never tried this before. I'm game! I've done transfers with lighter fluid but you get a reverse image with those and it stinks to high heaven. This sounds a lot easier and more interesting!!

I did mine, immersed in warm water for about 15 mins and the paper on the back just fell right off with no other residue on it and after dried the sticky came back. Fun
