Stained Glass Technique

Hello in my last post I promised a quick step by step on the Stained Glass technique - here it is!

First, stamp your chosen image in Versamark ink onto vellum, add white Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Carefully remove excess powder and heat with a heat tool.  

You can either heat from the top, this gives a slightly uneven texture or, if you heat from underneath this gives a smoother result.

Punch out with the matching punch or trim carefully with scissors.

Turn to the reverse and colour using Stampin' Write Markers - I used Watermelon Wonder and Delightful Dijon.  You don't need to be too neat when colouring, the embossing powder hides a multitude of sins!

When it is finished it should look something like this:

I like to give a little definition to my flowers so I use a foam mat and an embossing tool to gently shape.

I layered three flowers together to create my flower:

This technique is such a lovely way to add delicate colour to vellum, hopefully it makes sense, if not email me any questions.
