NaBloPoMo Day 5: Stained Glass Technique on Vellum

Today’s post is a cool technique that you can do with Vellum. It’s called “Stained Glass Technique.” Here’s how to do it:

Stamp you image with Versamark and cover with Pewter embossing powder. Heat with the heating tool until powder melts. Then use Markers to color the image. It gives the illusion of Stained Glass. (You can also color on the back of the vellum for softer colors.)  For this card, I used the stamp from “Delicate Doilies” set. I colored the vellum with Real Red, Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ markers.

To finish the card, I used a Real Red card base and ran it through the Big Shot with the “Delicate Designs” embossing folder. I used a square of Whisper White cardstock and punched a 2-1/2″ Circle in the center. I adhere it on top of the Vellum. Then I cut a 3″ square in the Silver Foil sheet and mounted the Vellum on top.  The greeting is from “Joyful Christmas”. I added a small rhinestone in the center of the “Stained glass”.

Come back tomorrow for another card with this fabulous technique!
