Challenge #156 - Transparencies

Hi Scrappy Friends.  Cathryn here to share a new challenge with you.
A few years ago I saw a layout made by Missy Whidden where she sprayed mist on a transparency and then cut it into little squares. I love that layout and have always wanted to try something like that myself.

 let me welcome our guest designer
Linda McEnergy

We are delighted to have Linda designing with us again, here is her beautiful project: 

And here is a little about her: 

Hello! I am Linda Mc Energy. I am 46 years old, married to my soulmate, with 3 grown, married children.  I’ve always loved crafting of all kinds, but started carding in 2009, because finding ‘just the right card’ for loved ones was really important to me, and I wasn’t happy with what I found on the shelves.  I am currently on 4 Design Teams and spend a LOT of my time crafting!  I love to add a personalized touch to my cards, so I enjoy knowing as much as I can about the recipient.

If you’d like to pop in for a visit, you can find me here:

So here are a few pictures of the transparency that I used alcohol ink on.  I then cut it into strips and used my sewing machine to stitch it to my background paper.

I really love how it turned out!

And this is my final layout

Here is more from our Design Team....

I used a transparency to create a shaker card.

I used square transparencies on white paper for my background.

I used a metallic, striped transparency paper to show off the rose gold glitter paste behind.

And now...congratulations to the winner of Challenge #155:
