That's a gorgeous image. There's no problem using it as a transfer. The challenge is getting a COLOR laser copy of it to use. Most libraries only have black and white. But if there's an Office Depot or Kinkos or someplace where they make copies, you could find a color laser/toner machine and have a copy made. Once you have the copy, it's the same process as black and white. Most artists use Golden gel, in gloss or matt.

You mention that the image is splotchy and that it's on glossy paper. The glossy paper should work in the copy machine just fine. Think of all the times people photocopy photos, and those are glossy. The splotchiness of the image probably will be okay, too, since transfers are by nature usually a bit distressed looking and the image itself has a kind of vintage feel to it.

You can try to do some smaller transfers on very heavy paper. In this video, she is working with color and transferring onto watercolor paper:


If you want to do a "canvas" I suggest gessoboard, which you can get even at Walmart. It's very stiff, unlike a wrapped canvas.

Transfers are a lot of fun (once you get past the rubbing part).

I don't think you actually use those for jewellery, the "encrusted jewels" refers more to the effect. In essence, it's a mixture of chunky and regular embossing powders, glitters and mica flakes which you mix up ( I think now it comes premixed too). The embossing powder part is enough to hold the mica and glitter on the card.

Here's a card where I used​ the green kit: MIX212 Metal Petals

Here's another video about Frantage mixes:


Sabrina explained them well. The embossing powders act as a "glue" to hold the glitter and mica flakes in place.

I did buy a couple of sets some years back, but then I never used them (I'm not a glitter type of gal in general, I have discovered) so gave them away.

But you could use them on your panels that you just bought. It could look very cool.

Gosh, that's a spectacular card, Sabrina!

Welcome to the club, Linda! We are all exploring this huge world of crafting and trying to find what we want to do. There are so many choices and it's smart to come here and post questions before you go spending money.

I stamp alone. I have never crafted alongside anyone else. When I started I knew NOTHING. Much of what I know, I learned from posting questions here.

We are all here to teach each other. And to learn from each other. !

What does the packaging say on your panels, Linda? It should say whether they are already gessoed or not. If so, you can move forward. If not, we'll think of something else. Are you planning to paint them before you work on them? Or just stamp on them?

I looked I don't see where said thing. It most like dose not matter. I will like never doing them. Mom not interested now. I will mostly watercolor them before stamping on them. It was fun learn what I have learned so far. But, right it just a passing thought.

It's days like I wish my hands worked. right I am watch YouTube video. Everyone I watching make boxes and neat projects. Me and mom can't measurement or cut a straight line lives. I sorry to be complaining I guess you can say I am having one days!

Linda - before you give up, tell me this - does the surface feel like fabric, you know you can feel threads, or is it smooth?

Those white ones say they are primed with gesso. So if that's what you have (and the ones you show are stretched canvas, not canvas board - stretched canvas is stapled around a frame and isn't rigid like canvas glued to a flat board) then you can work directly on it. It's ready to go.

I can try to link you to some videos. Answer me this: When you press in the center of your canvas, does it give a little or it the whole thing rigid?
