Color Burst Stain Glass Effect

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.

Supplies: - Cardstock, Rubber Stamps, Die Cut Tag
Color Burst Powders
