S tained Glass Technique created by heat embossing Copper Embossing Powder onto Vellum. The image is coloured from behind using Stampin' Blends - Alcohol Ink pens from Stampin' Up!
Dust Vellum with Embossing Buddy, then stamp the large snowflake image and the 2 smaller snowflakes using Versa Mark ink. Remember to use a Pierce Mat under your Vellum!
Leave room around the large snowflake .
Cover with Copper Embossing Powder and tap from behind to remove excess powder.
Heat with Heat Tool until the powder melts. This will happen quite quickly with the Vellum, so stop as soon as the powder turns shiny
Working from the back of the Vellum, colour in areas of the snowflake using Stampin' Blends (alcohol ink), to create the Stained Glass effect.
Note that you will need to let the first layer of colour dry for a moment and then add more colour to improve the density.
Use the Circle Builder Framelits to cut out the opening for the "window". I used the largest circle to cut out the white card and the 2nd largest circle to cut out the Copper Foil Card, thus creating a foil circle around the image.
Cut out the 2 smaller snowflakes.
Adhere the copper foil card under the Whisper White Thick card ensuring you have an even circle of Copper Foil showing.
Next adhere the Vellum to the back of the Copper Foil using Fast Fuse or Snail Adhesive.
Stamp the greeting directly onto the card below the cut out circle. Place the smaller snowflakes to balance your composition, adhere them to the card and you are finished.
