Bring the beauty of stained glass to your papercrafts, without the special tools.
- Outline Image Stamp
- Vellum Paper
- Dark Pigment Ink
- Clear Embossing Powder
- Embossing Buddy
- Heat Gun
- Neutral Colored Cardstock
Rub Embossing Buddy over vellum. This will help keep embossing powder where it belongs - on the stamped image.
Stamp image in dark pigment ink on the vellum.
Pour clear embossing powder over the image and tap off the excess powder.
Ink stamp with Versamark™ and apply dark embossing powder over it.
Heat powder until it melts.
If you are using vellum paper, the paper will curl a bit.
Flip vellum over and color the back of the image with markers.
Color the entire image and let dry.
Adhere the vellum piece to neutral cardstock, making sure the embossed side faces up.
Place adhesive where it won't be seen later. It can be hidden behind ribbon or a cardstock window.
Instead of adhesive, use brads or just ribbon to secure the vellum to the neutral colored cardstock.
Finish your card.
