Stained Glass Technique


Happy Friday everyone!  I haven't had a lot of time to create over the last few days so I'm sharing a card I made for a card class a few months ago.  It uses a really pretty technique called Stained Glass. 

Its a simple technique; stamp your image in Versamark then black ink onto vellum paper.  Cover with clear embossing powder and heat set.  Flip the vellum over to work on the reverse side and then with either blender pen and ink pads or write markers, color in your image.  Layer your image on neutral cardstock before applying to your project.  It really does look like stained glass when your done!

Supplies:

Stamp sets: Greeting Card Kids
Cardstock: Whisper White, Vellum, Calypso Coral, Baja Breeze
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Versamark, clear embossing powder, Calypso Coral, Early Espresso, Blush Blossom, Real Red markers, Fashionable Hearts embosslit folder, Square lattice embossing folder, corner punch, Everyday Enchantment Calypso Coral ribbon and brads, snail, tombow liquid adhesive

Thanks so much for looking!
