Additional Transparent Inspirations

Ok ladies, don't be intimated with the title of this challenge.  As you can see below at the DT inspirations that your entry does not have to use a complicated technique to be a part of the challenge "Be Transparent".  You still have a whole week to enter.
I wanted to make a window for my sample this time.  However, I didn't want to put it in a card as that is where most people put their windows.  I put mine in a tag.   

I started my tag by using black cardstock and embossing it with an embossing spider web folder.  I then highlighted it with white ink.   Next came the window.

The window was cut with a Spellbinders die and then I covered it with a plastic sheet.  Afterward I placed the image behind the plastic.  The image is little Priscilla from CS Designs.  She was colored with Copics.  Her hair is decked with Fall leaves and she carries  a pumpkin and a spider.. 

I finished off the tag with a ribbon of rafia and a couple of stickers in the spider web.          

Hi, Here's Valerie.
I have printed the row of houses (Hampton Art Stanps) onto a scrap of transparent packaging materal using Stazon black, and made a blue window frame round it, to make it look like the view out of a window.

You might ask where is the transparency ... I know, it is not easy to spot because of my photographic skills or the lack of! The little bird sits behind a transparent window. For my little wall hanging I reused an old Kraft window envelope and layered it on patterend paper (Echo Park and Prima Marketing). the stamped images are stamps from Stamper Anonymous and Kaisercraft.
