Hello and welcome! We have another fun challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and a special guest, the fabulous Tammy Tutterow. If you have never seen Tammy's tutorials, you must head over to her blog and look at all of them, she shares great techniques and the tutorials are wonderful. Our challenge this week is to be inspired by one of Tammy's tutorials.
I used Graphic 45 French Country 8 x 8 patterned papers for the transfers, since they have a lovely autumn/harvest theme. Each of the four windows has a different transferred image. I love how they turned out and it looks even better in the dark with a battery tea candle inside the luminary. I wanted the windows to be a bit thicker than the Frosted Film and placed the transfers on pieces of acetate, using thin adhesive along the edges, that doesn't show.
I hope you will join us this week! As every week, one random participant wins a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp. That Luminary die is in stock :)
Happy autumn crafting!!
