How to Upcycle TAP (Transfer Artist Paper)

When I appeared on C&T Publishing's 'Wednesday Night Live with Lisa Fulmer' (Here is the link to my post for that show) on July 6th, I demonstrated how to use TAP with your home d├ęcor and I made this flower image.  I used crayons to colour it.  When I removed the backing paper from the design I discovered that it, too, had a lovely design on it and it would be a shame to throw it out.

I had also taken a picture of some of my purple irises in my garden and used TAP to transfer the image onto another project.  Again, when I pulled the paper back I discovered a very interesting image.

This card is what I made bringing the two project 'rejects' together.
The 'vase' was made using a plastic divider square from a small organizing bin (like one with a bunch of compartments where you could sort buttons, beads, etc and it has a lid).  I used Ranger alcohol inks to colour the plastic square.
The cards stock was from Making Memories and the sentiment is a stamp I purchased from my dollar store.The flowers are highlighted with Sakura 3D Lacquer.

Thanks for stopping by :)


  1. The backing? Oh my this is just so pretty! Beautiful design. Love how dark the vase turned out. Thanks for sharing, Robi! ~Molly

  2. Thank you Lisa --- You know ME and recycling :) lol

  3. Molly, thank you so much. I'm thrilled I found a use for all those useless little plastic squares!


It's nice to get feedback.
