Splitcoast tutorial: Stained Glass Panels

This week's tutorial over on Splitcoast is called Stained Glass Panels - it's a fun way to add a stained glass effect to die cut openings!

 This card is a small victory for me because I finally took the time to figure out how to design and cut a shaped card out with my Scan 'n Cut! I cut 3 of the pumpkin fronts, and then flipped and overlapped 2 pumpkins to make a folding base. I used an oval cut to mask off the shading lines, then brushed orange ink along each ridge with a little extra brown ink at the bottom. 

I could have cut the faces from the cards, but I really wanted to use this Jack O. Lantern die set from A Jillian Vance Design - I love the face and stitching detail, but I especially love that the die is all one piece, and it's a great size for card fronts or goodie bags. So cute! I mixed yellow Brusho with my gel medium in the die cut openings - I couldn't find any glossy medium, so I just used matte and that seemed to work ok.

Here's the card with a battery tea light inside - so fun! Do you have a die that would work with this technique?

Hope you're having a good week - I'm working on Christmas crafts when I have the time, and started on another portrait over the weekend - a pug! You can follow my progress on Instagram. Cheers!
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Love the pumpkin. I like the idea of using Brushos to color the medium. I am curious. Did you add water to the Brushos or did you just mix the dry powder with the medium?
