She Sells Seashells - TMTA Transparent

'She Sells Seashells' ATC

The current challenge at Think Monday Think ATC is 'transparent'.  A scrap of bubble wrap inspired this ATC!  I used a section of bubble wrap to print ink onto the background paper.  For the foreground, I popped the bubbles to help flatten the texture, stapled it to the ATC and added a little gesso and ink to the lower section of the bubble wrap.

All stamped images are from Dark Room Door's 'Seashells' stamp set and the lovely collage image is by ARTchix studios.

So beauatiful and so very clever, I used to stamp with bubble wrap and had forgotten about that technique. I love the use of it in the front as your transparent part.
