Wednesday Stamper - Transparent Art




I have always loved the look of transparencies in artwork. They can give an almost dreamlike quality to a piece that is so appealing to me. These two atcs were created with playing cards that were layered with gesso, pages from the telephone book, and gel medium then stamped. I find these backgrounds fantastic for making images pop from them. I always like to add transparent pieces as a final step. These are my submissions for this week's Wednesday Stamper challenge.

Amazing work Heather, I can't beleive how many challenges you do. I suppose it is the transparancies that make the images and stamps you used just pop right out, I am not sure, but the effect is wonderful. This is something I need to learn more of, I have never used transparancies yet, and I love when bloggers explain what they did to their work, that is a great way for people like me to learn :) Thank you so much for that.
