Default TECHNIQUE FOR ADDING MAGAZINE PHOTOS TO CARDS

I had seen a technique (somewhere!) for using an image from a magazine, book, or newspaper (your choice) to a stamped project. There was a tutorial listing the type of products which could be used, ink, glue, glaze type etc. What I would like to do is use a fairly large magazine photo of an old car on a birthday card. I plan on creating my own background on either glossy, watercolor, or matte cardstock. It doesn't matter to me which one. Whatever works best for the technique is what I would use. I'd like to stamp the greeting and perhaps add a stamped image too. What would be the best way to do this? I was thinking maybe Diamond Glaze or Inkessentials matte or glossy might work but having never used either product, I don't know if this is the best method. I don't want the magazine image to be wrinkled on the page. Would it be a good idea to first do the background, add the magazine image and stamped images and then cover the whole thing with Diamond Glaze or another product? There are so many products out there and I'm not sure what the best way to do this is. Looked everywhere but can't find the tutorial I had seen. Any suggestions you can offer would be appreciated.

Thanks. I'll have to check tutorials for the tape and see if I can find the one I'm looking for. Thanks again.

Liquid glue won't work... but i use a regular gluestick for gluing magazine pictures and it works fine.

The problem with glustick is that it eventually loses it's sticky... I'm telling you, once you try Miracle Tape, you'll never look back!

Lorraine, are you talking about the Packing Tape Transfer Technique? I wrote a tutorial on this technique yesterday.

Thank you! This is exactly what I wanted to do and having step by step instructions is just what I needed. Of course remembering the name of the technique would help with finding it on line - lol. Sometimes I just make myself nuts. Thanks again.
