Stained Glass Technique {Verve, MOJO & CTD}


Happy Friday! It's me again, back with another card! The weekend is my time to craft and I have been saving up all week! I have been challenging myself to use techniques! Tonight I tried the "Stain Glass" technique. I was inspired to use the MOJO Sketch, the Verve Inspiration Challenge and the colours at The Colour Throwdown.

 

To achieve the stain glass look:

  1. Choose a stamp with lots of "space" to colour.
  2. Heat emboss the stamp on vellum with white embossing powder.
  3. Turn the vellum over and colour on the BACK of the image. It is very important to NOT colour on the actual white embossing as it will hurt your Copic marker.
  4. Fussy cut the images out and add to your card.
