Welcome back to the March CAS Mix Up Challenge to which I’m so honoured to be hosting, PLUS it’s our 3rd Anniversary Blog, Yahoo. This month, we’re trying the Faux Stained Glass technique. Of course, we’ve got plenty of video’s on the blog, but the design team along with our Special Guest Gundi have made some stunning cards to get you started.
Using my favourite Framed Fern Die, from Penny Black, I adhered 3 layers of die cuts out of 140lb watercolour paper. Then, I mixed some Alcohol inks of yellow, green and blue onto Yupo paper. Once dry, I placed my stacked/glue stacks to where I liked the nuances of colour and adhered it. Instead of Glossy Accents, I used Americana’s Triple Thick Gloss Glaze and, except for some bubbles, it did the job. Again I waited for this coat to dry and trimmed the piece at the edge of the die cut. To finish I stamped a zen checkered stamp (Texture Clear Stamp Arty from Kaisercraft) with sticky embossing powder and added silver gilding flakes. I also added silver gilding flakes to the fourth Framed Fern die cut to top my stained glass.
