Hello everyone!! Brenda here with you today. I tried a new stained-glass technique that I saw a popular card maker demonstrate recently & I am IN LOVE!!! You can use any coordinating stamp & die set for this technique. I used the Holiday Love Poinsettia & Coordinating Die!!
I started by stamping the Holiday Love Poinsettia onto Bristol paper with a pale ink for some no-line coloring…then colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The poinsettia image was also stamped onto some heat resistant acetate with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with silver embossing powder. Once I figured out where I would place my focal image, I stamped a sentiment from Cozy Poinsettias (I love the sentiments & fonts in this set!!) and also heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. I splattered some watercolor drops across the panel for some interest. Once dry, the Holiday Love Poinsettia Coordinating Die was used to cut the image from the front panel. The transparency was adhered behind the white card panel, then the watercolored image was lined up behind the transparency and adhered with lots of foam adhesive. I adhered all of this on top of blue cardstock and Silver Glitter Tape. Some silver stickles and Metallic Silver Nuvo Drops finished off the card. It really does look like stained glass!!!
I loved this card so much, that I had to make another using the same beautiful Holiday Love Poinsettia set, but changed up the colors a little.
The technique was exactly the same, I just used gold embossing powder this time. The sentiment is still from Cozy Poinsettias . Gold stickles, Gold Glitter Tape & Pale Gold Nuvo Drops bring the bling!!!
I hope I have inspired you to try this technique!! The Holiday Love Poinsettia is particularly striking!!
