So this month's Club Scrap Technique Challenge is the Stained Glass technique! I love this technique because the results are always a beautiful surprise.
This is one of the cards I created. This piece represents the most traditional idea of Stained Glass the best - a pane of glass with mosaic of beautiful pieces of glass. I used a variety of colors - I can't really tell you which ones though - I usually dump my bottles on the table and just grab n sprinkle.
Here's what you do...
Stamp desired image(s) with VersaMark ink...
Sprinkle on Black EP then heat to melt to the powder.
These are the first 2 I made...
Sprinkle on the powders wet with water and let the powders do their magic.
I do know I used Violet and Orchid on the flower -
Indigo and Turquoise on the background.
My final card really doesn't fit the idea of stained glass but I was having so much fun stamping, embossing and sprinkling on the powders I just kept going. It was fun to make even though it doesn't fit the challenge. I guess we can think of this as a bonus card - LOL!!
So there you go...have you tried the stained glass technique? If not, you really should - you'll get caught up in the inks and powders - you just never know where it will lead you.
