Stained Glass Technique

I love the look of stained glass and when Karen asked if anyone wanted to do a monthly technique challenge on duplicating a stained glass look I jumped on it! You can see the entire post on the Club Scrap blog. I think my love of stained glass came from a home I grew up in. We had a stained glass window in our dining room.  I have lots of great memories in that dining room!

I created different looks using embossing powder with intricate stamps and using Color Bursts.



rap papers, stamps. Ken Oliver Color Bursts. Tim Holtz alphabets. Queen&Co pearls. Acrylic paint with bubble wrap.
I used the same technique here of embossing with black embossing powder and using Color Bursts to color.




Had to add another Dahlia flower!


For this technique, I stamped black ink on vellum, heat embossed the image with black embossing powder. I then used Copics to color in the image. Depending on what you're going for here, you can color the backside of the vellum to get a more muted look. I was going for bold and bright and colored on the front side.


My final demonstration was mostly an ah-ha moment. I was looking at images of stained glass and I was wondering if I could make own "stain glass" with my Club Scrap stamp stash. The closest I could find was the chicken wire background stamp from Easter Chicks. Here I stamped my flower stamp and heat embossed with black embossing powder. I then stamped the wire pattern over the flower and heat embossed again. This gave me the fractured look and lines of stained glass.


Create your own stained glass for layouts, cards and projects and share your results at the Club Scrap Linky Party.

Orchard Watercolor

If you're already hopping and linked to me from Tina's Blog, you're in the right spot. Gelatos are acid-free pigment ink sticks that can be used with or without water.  I love the bright colors and creamy texture of the Gelatos.  The fact they look like lipstick tubes is kinda cute too. 1. Directly color the stamp with your gelatos. I usually start with the lightest color first and work to the darkest. 2. Mist water directly on to the stamp. 3. Stamp image onto paper.  I used all sorts of papers: cardstock, watercolor and mixed media papers. I d…
