Exclamation stained glass

Can anyone tell me how to give the appearance of a stained glass window on acetate or something see-thru. I would like to stamp a cross behind it but I don't know where to start?

You can get a kind of stained glass look with vellum (preferably cardstock weight), black ink and/or embossing powder and some markers. Stamp on the vellum in black ink or emboss, then colour with markers on the reverse side.

Look under the stained glass images. They are having a great sale on their unmounted images. I know they have one that is a cross in that section. You can use it on vellum or stamp on acetate with staz on and then color the backside with glitter (you would need the Art Institute Dries Clear glue).

One technique that is fun to try is to stamp with Stazon on acetate or vellum cardstock. Color with the SU metallic pencils, and top with Crystal Effects. My favorite stained glass technique, however, is to emboss an open-style image in black on acetate, fill in the open areas with Crystal Effects and then swirl in a drop of two of ink reinkers. (I drop it in from the reinker bottle, and then swirl with a thin wooden skewer or toothpick.) Once it dries, the effect is dimensional and has clear colors reminiscent of stained glass.

Hope that helps!

Sakura Glaze pens look like stained glass when used to colour an image stamped on acetate.

I got a stained glass stamp a couple of weeks ago, and I've had some fun experimenting with alcohol inks on top of glossy paper, and then stamping with Stazon on top of that. I did different alcohol ink prints for each section of my stained glass (border, background, stem and leaves, flower petals), cut away the unneeded sections from upper layers and then glued the three layers together.

Here's the card:

That was just my first try. I used some slightly different ink combinations on the same stamp this week, and the result was spectacular. I'd give you a link, but I haven't made it into a card yet.

Go to www.scraptime.ca and Christine actually has a tutorial video showing the stained glass technique. I LOVE HER VIDEOS! She shows it with both colored pencils and with markers. Cool cool cool.

I love the idea of your embossing/crystal effects/ink - how do U get it so that the crystal effects doesn't go outside your embossed "lines" - I tried it with a flower stamp and it went everywhere - looks great though! Thanks

Cornish Heritage has a Stained Glass background stamp. I have not used it on Vellum, but it might work. With light colors in the "glass" window your cross would show through quite well.

The last time I used this background, I stamped with Versamark on white cardstock and colored with chalk. Here is the card "Like A Shepherd" I haven't tried that technique on vellum either. But now that you asked..... hmmmm.... ???
