More cardstock fun

Purple haze all in my brain…

Unfortunately I overpowered it, and it was wrecked. Was about to redo it with new settings but then I said “well, lets just see how it looks backlit…”

Uhh…

Needless to say I didn’t do it again. That’s perfect.

Oh snap I just got a dramatic flashlight spot backlight:

After looking at the first image I would have never guessed that it had so much detail in it. Glad you thought to back light it.

Well technically this is just a paper lithophane, and I did do something like this before (under previously in the original post).

I think it’s still pretty cool, new or not!

I am doing the same thing with single coloured card stock. The resulting item is still quite tough. It gets kind of like fabric.

That is super cool. I have a bunch of cardstock around I may need to start messing around with it. I can’t believe the detail you got out of that with the back lighting.

Click the previously link in the beginning of this thread, I go into a lot more detail there.

Right? This is my second attempt at this, I was similarly amazed in the last one (again, the previously link is the trick here).

Seems perfect for a Chinese (Japanese?) lantern with those LED candles like @geek2nurse 's Kumiko lanterns If you put it in backwards it would look blank till lit up.

Very cool, and now my ear worm is a flash back to the late 60’s - a wonderful time in a crazy kinda way.

This is Amazing! I can’t even believe its the same picture as on top! What are you going to do with it? I just love it.
