So many of you wrote to ask for directions for the stained glass card I shared HERE - so I put together a stepped-out tutorial. Hope this helps clear up the process, and I'd love for you to share if you try this out!
Here are the supplies I used:
- 2 quarter sheets of white cardstock, 1 cut down by 1/4"
- alcohol markers (mine are Touch Twin Markers - R3, R22, Y24, Y37)
- an open die (this is Impression Obsession's Floral Lace Heart)
- clear plastic (I used Clear Card Stock that I got at Heartfelt Creations)
- embossing folder (optional)
I cut the heart at a slight angle, and off the edge of my smaller cardstock panel. You can emboss the rectangle or leave it as is. Keep both pieces.
Lay the diecut heart underneath your piece of clear cardstock to use as a guide for coloring, and tape it in place so it doesn't slide. Make sure your coloring extends slightly beyond the edge of each opening.
(This isn't a step, I just wanted to give an idea of how the layers fit back together when your card is assembled.)
Adhere the diecut to the clear cardstock. You can use a gluestick, or dot glue in the larger areas using a glue bottle with a small tip.
Adhere the clear cardstock to the back of your rectangle panel. Tape is fine, but glue around the edges also helps.
**Note - if you notice, like I did at this point, that you "missed a spot" while you were coloring, you can still add color to the back side of your clear panel.
I chose to pop my panel up with mounting tape, so that light could come behind the colored piece. It would work to adhere it right to your base, too.
Here's the finished card.
Again, I'd love to see your interpretation of this technique! Leave me a link in the comment section if you try it out. Thanks for visiting, and please don't ever hesitate to email me if you have questions about my projects!
