Have you tried out the Stained Glass technique recently?!?! It is super fun and fairly easy. Although it is one of those techniques that no 2 will come out the same….that’s always hard for me!
To do the stained glass technique, you will need vellum, Stampin’ Blends, and Rubbing Alcohol (the higher the number the better). I found that the darker colors of Stampin’ Blends worked better. When I used light Pool Party, it was barely visible. Color random splotches all over the vellum. This can be messy and all over but be sure to cover the entire piece of vellum. I used Night of Navy, Misty Moonlight, and Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends! Now for adding the alcohol there can be various ways to do so! Using a Water Painter, Paint Brush, Wink of Stella or simply just dripping it.
For mine, I started by lightly dabbing around the edge of each color with the Water Painter (filled with 91% alcohol). Starting with the darkest color and finishing that one before moving to the next lighter color. Once I finished that, I dripped a few times with the alcohol as well as Wink of Stella! I love the random glitter spots! It’s just perfect! Also, remember that part of the look will be covered up with the Angel so it’s okay if there is a weird spot or it just doesn’t look right. It’s all good!!
For the focal point, I used the Angels of Peace Stamp Set and Night of Navy Ink! The cardstock colors used were Night of Navy and Balmy Blue! The greeting is popped up with the Timeless Label Punch!
I hope you try out this Stained Glass Technique because it is super fun! Check out this video if you want more of a visual on how it works! It would be great for a water theme with fishes or mermaids or even a snowy look! Fall colors and using it with leaves and trees would be fabulous too! So many possibilities!
