Faux Tin Type Image Transfer

I'm so excited about today's image transfer technique for several reasons...

1. This technique is in my new book so you're getting an early peek at what's to come :)

2. It's very easy and works with ink jet, laser, photo copies, pre-printed collage sheets, ephemera, etc. HOW COOL IS THAT?!?!?!??

3. This particular lay-out is going to be in one of Stampington's coming issues in an add for Streuter (the scrapbook mag ~ they changed names and I don't remember what the new name is).

4. Not only is it an image transfer but it creates a faux tin type with no muss, no fuss!!!

5. The instructions are in PDF form so you can down-load them and use at your leisure :)

Here you go....


(scroll down to Snips -n- Snails ~ second down)

Now, in addition to this lay-out, here is another example of the same technique in action...

Streuter - CHA Winter 09004

Streuter - CHA Winter 09005

Now, since I know some of you haven't had the chance to try GlueFoil I am going to be giving away 2 sets of GlueFoil.

Each set consists of a sampling of each of the 3 colors -

Copper (my fav.) Aluminium and Stainless Steel!!!

Of course this isn't the only thing you can do with GlueFoil but those techniques are for another day ;)

Sooooo ~ to enter just tell me what you'd use this technique on...

card, atc, scrapbook layout, home decor, ?????

I'd love to hear what you have in mind :)

You have until 4-26 to post ~ at that time I'll draw out two names at random (using random.org)!

Good Luck Everyone!!

  7. I would love to try the faux tintype technique with the glue foil. I did a faux tintype with Omnigell and silver pigment powder here, but yours came out much better.

  18. Really like that this technique can be used on other images besides those from an inkjet printer. I would use the transfers on a card or ATC.

  25. I just took a class with Cheryl Moote (have you met her? she is a great instructor of quilt-type cards, book binding and more!) and I think this foil would make an awesome cover piece for a mini book! summ1 at verizon dot net

  26. I'm working on a book made out of chipboard in a house shape and would love to transfer some birds. This sounds really cool and easy to use.

  27. I would love it to use them on a canvas or mini album, transfering images of some old wedding photos of my parents.

    And also probably on some ATCs / cards too.

  28. This image transfer technique is especially wonderful because you can use inkjet transfers! That opens up a whole new world of images to transfer. I would love to add some faux tin type images to my dd's wedding guest book which I am working on now!

  29. I have a photos of each of my sons wearing their Great Grandfathers' Christening dress, and I think they would lend themselves to the tin type technique very well!
