Packing Tape Image Transfer - easy peasy!

I've seen the packing tape image transfer technique mentioned here and there in the crafting world and thought I would try it out as it sounded so easy.  I found a great little video by Julie at Balzer Designs and loved the jewellery she had made so decided to make something for a colleague's birthday.  My friend just dotes on her two Jack Russell dogs and I must admit they are the most well behaved Jack Russells I've met.  So her gift just had to be doggy inspired.

So I made this phone/bag charm for her.  I found an image of a Jack Russell in a magazine, transferred it and attached it to the back of this Tim Holtz Charm Fragment pendant.  The transferred image is transparent so I backed it with a piece cut from an old dictionary.  If I'd used plain cardstock for the backing the image would have shown up more I suppose but I quite like having the definition for "companionship" showing through the dog image.  A bit more experimentation is needed I think.

I made her a birthday card with a Jack Russell on too.  I don't believe you can get Jack Russell brand coffee in the UK or I would have bought her some of that too.  Great image though.
