Recently, I was playing with my stamps, and this idea came to me! You see, I’ve been wanting to find a way to create a stained glass look on a Window Sheet. And as I looked through my various supplies, it hit me – Crystal Effects dries clear!
***Be sure to rub you Embossing Buddy across the Window Sheet before you stamp – plastic is especially static-y!***
Next, I sprinkled black Stampin’ Emboss Powder over the stamped image, shook off the excess powder, then melted the powder with my Heat Tool.
***Be sure to keep your Heat Tool moving to prevent melting and warping the plastic Window Sheet!***
Now comes the fun part! I spread Crystal Effects over the back of the stamped & embossed image using my Aquapainter. I placed drops of several colors of ink onto a paper plate, then used my Aquapainter to pick up the colors and mix them with the Crystal Effects already on the Window Sheet.
***Tip – don’t let your image get too wet. Keep a dry paper towel handy to dab off the extra moisture.***
Once you’ve finished coloring your image, set it aside to dry – mine actually took a couple of days before it was dry enough to work with, so be patient!!!
When it’s dry enough to work with, mount your “stained glass” onto a piece of Glimmer Paper to add even more sparkle, then finish your card as desired!
Leave me a comment & tell me what you think of this fun new technique!
