Layering Images

Oh wow, I had such a great time with today's Inspiration Challenge over on SCS!! The inspiration website this week is called Skeem. They sell pillar candles, perfumes, that sort of thing. As I was going through it, I was intrigued by the transparent layered look of the pillar candles. Layers. Transparent. Layers...transparent...oh yah...this was gonna be fun!! To recreate the layered look of the images on the pillars, I grabbed my brand new Printed Window Sheets from SU and cut away the corner quarter of the sheet that has the flower bursts. Then I got out two more clear sheets and on one, I stamped a Hero Arts leaf image with Teal Blue Stazon, and on the other I stamped the butterfly from the God's Beauty Hostess Set by SU with Black Stazon. I layered the 3 transparency sheets together using doublestick tape (my ATG gun). I then taped the stack to a base card I had made into a window card using a Nestabilities Labels 4 die. Behind the transparencies, I adhered a piece of Close to Cocoa Pattern Print by SU to cover (and hide!) the tape on the back of the transparencies. To finish it off, I used a sentiment from Chit Chat rub ons by SU and a couple of half-back faux pearls (isn't it funny that I called them "faux" pearls, like you might think they're real if I didn't say that LOL!!). Thanks for checking in!!
