Image transfer card

This is a card I made for an image transfer swap on CCSwaps. I haven't made a card for months. The botanical image was transferred to a piece of linen by printing the image onto Epson double sided matte photo paper, then smearing both the image and the fabric with a thin layer of Golden regular matte gel medium, and running the paper and fabric through the Wizard.

I am finding this method for creating image transfers is pretty reliable and works well onto fabric, gessoed mount board, watercolour paper...

I layered the fabric image transfer onto watercolour paper, then onto embossed card (used the 'distressed stripes Cuttlebug folder for this), and then again onto more watercolour paper. The papers were coloured with pesto and butterscotch colorwashes, and I used small scraps with brads and ribbon to make the embellishments above and below the main image. The whole thing was layered onto green cardstock.


  1. This is gorgeous Adrienne - the tones and hues work so subtly together!
    I might see if I can use my sizzix for a transfer... otherwise it'll be water again!!

  2. Fabulous transfer, will look at the Wizard to see how to do it. Love your blog, too!

  3. This is really beautiful. Thanks for explaining step-by-step.

  4. Adrienne,

    Would you be so kind as to describe what kind of sandwich you feed into the Wizard. Do you use the spacer plate?

    I just bought one and I love transfers, but get blisters on my finger tips from rubbing paper off.

    Love your art,
