Transparencies with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}

Savannah O'Gwynn here, and today I'm sharing a couple of cards that I created for the PS SPARKS August Trend Watch challenge (HERE). I also share tips and tricks on how to stamp on transparencies, as well as ways to attach it to your creations:)

Here's the video:

Here's a couple of pictures of my finished card-- I actually layered two pieces of stamped transparency for this card! LOVE! 

Different inks to use with transparencies (Stazon inks not included in this video- but it's recommended).
Different ways to add your transparencies to your creations.

I hope that that you are inspired to create some different design elements using transparencies and your PS stamps! If you want to join in the fun with the 
PS SPARKS challenge- there's still time! Link up your creations HERE

Inspiration+++!! Love this idea - and who knew (except for brilliant you!!) that 'old school' transparencies (oh, the days of the overhead projectors!) would have such a unique future in the card-making world! FABULOUS cards, excellent instructions, great stamping/ink tips - yes indeed, outstanding lesson!! I'll aim to be a good student and give this a try!! Hugs!

Awesome video and awesome tips! I generally dismiss using transparencies, although I LOVE the look! I just normally end up making a huge mess - ink smudged everywhere! But with your tips and tricks added to my tool box, I will give it another chance - FOR SURE!!

I forgot how much I love using acetate or transparency film on my cards! Staz On is my "go to" ink, but you've shown some great alternatives. Wonderful tutorial, Sav! Thanks so much!
