Good morning and welcome to a brand new month!
This means today is Crafty Secret's Design Team Challenge and Linky Party!
Even though we got another 6 inches of snow this weekend, the challenge was to make something spring like.
I had to go to my warmer, snow free, happy place!
I loved this stained glass window from the Easter Blessings digital collection.
I used a combination of acetate and card stock. It was very hard to photograph, but in person it is very dimensional and looks just like a stained glass window!
This is what I did to create this 3D effect. :)
I printed the image directly on acetate. I didn't want the ink to smear so I sprinkled it with clear embossing powder.
Yep, just dump it directly on top.
Heat set it with a heat gun.
Pull out the Copic colors you want and color on the back side that is not embossed. I used my little magnet thingys to hold it down, so I could see where I was coloring.
I printed the image a second time on card stock and cut out the windows using an Xacto knife.
I trimmed the acetate windows leaving a bit on the side so I would have somewhere to glue it.
I glued it behind the card stock. I took my Sakura glue pen and outlined the perimeter and sprinkled silver glitter.
I colored the pieces I had cut out. Not all that neatly, because it only serves to pop the color a bit, you won't really see if you went out of the lines a bit.
I lined up the card stock pieces on my card and adhered them.
I took my acetate/card stock piece and placed dimensional circles behind it. I lined it up directly above my cardstock windows. It gives it a vibrant, cool dimensional look!
I tried numerous times to capture the look....I did my best. ;)
I added a few fun details to finish off the card.
I hope this made sense.....because I have a tendency to ramble at times. If you have any questions please feel free to ask!
