Default Packing Tape Transfer Technique

My friend, Barbara Reed has urged me to try this fun and easy technique. (You can see her work in the current issue of Vamp Stamp News.) I will see if I can get Barbara to add some art to this thread.

You will need a great image or ad from a glossy magazine, packing tape, spoon and bowl of warm water.

Choose your image. Ad/art on glossy paper works best.
Place packing tape face down on the image.
Turn over and use a spoon to burnish the ad/art to the tape.
Place taped image in a bowl of warm water. Let soak for a couple minutes.
Using your finger, in a circular motion, rub the paper to remove the paper from the tape.

Left: the ad (my image is out of Country Living).
Right: completed Packing Tape Technique adhered to scrapbook paper.

Have fun. Can't wait to see what you make!

Lorraine, it blesses my socks off to know that one of my tutorials is helpful! Look at that -- I'm barefoot. I hope you will add your card here as another example!!! Please?

Is there a similar technique that uses gin? Seem to recall that from the depths of my memory banks... no, you don't drink the gin...

That is so funny. You know, I do kind of remember hearing there was a technique that used gin, but no one ever invited ME over to try it with them.

Do you think some people use gin instead of water to remove the paper?

Oh, try clear contact paper if the width of packing tape isn't wide enough. Be sure to burnish the paper really well. You probably will want to let it sit in the warm water for a bit longer too before trying to remove the paper.

I'm researching it... I think I know who told me about the technique many years ago.

Trying to picture this... Do you cut out your image (I can't imagine cutting between all those chair rungs) before you put the tape over it? And after you've removed the paper with the circular motion, then what? You adhere the tape to your project? Your project doesn't like like the tape is still on it, so does the tape come off? Sorry to be so dense but I could use just a bit more explanation, please.

This is a tutorial by Hero Arts showing the technique. The tape is part of the transfer so just the back of the magazine image or paper you're using gets removed.
