If you have been reading my blog for any amount of time you know that I love vintage greeting card images. I have an abundant collection that I pull from both digital and hard copy. My favorite thing do with them is to scan them (if needed) and clean them up in photoshop. In photoshop I can take out yellow marks and creases...pen marks and single out the image. Last week I found another use... This one I am tickled about.
This cute little vintage shelf came from a local shop that specializes in specialty "Vintage" boutique items. I don't want to know how many people walked past this one...thankfully it waited for me. I have been toying with this new product of inkjet waterslide decal paper. Will it work? Are the images going to be crisp? Well...I tried it...and it's true love. I will be decaling my kiddos soon.
eBay is where I purchased my paper. I recommend the transparent paper. It looks more like the old original decals.
After printing the images the directions clearly state to spray with clear coat and dry for 30-60 minutes. Patience...a quick sizing of the image and a trim with the scissors and a bath for a minute and these worked like a charm.
The possibilities are limitless.
Yes, I did already move things in my studio...I waited 2 whole days. My decal delight didn't stop here wait till you see what I got my hands on next!
