Default stained glass

I need some stained glass help.

I am wanting to make some cards with the retired "stained glass" stamp set that has the iris, the partridge in a pear tree, the humingbird, etc., but I believe you can use a stained glass techique using almost any stamp.

What do you guys use?
I've heard of using acetate, overhead transparencies for this or vellum.
I've looked everywhere for both of those and the only ones I found are really pricey - but they come in packs of 50-100. It's a shame they don't sell just a few sheets. If anyone knows where I can get a smaller quantity I would be grateful!

I save & use my packaging. (Examples: embossing folders, bakery containers)

Do you have twinking H2O's? You can stamp on black, emboss with gold and then paint with the H2O's. Beautiful! That's how I use that set.

I've never heard of them before but I just saw a video using them and I can't wait to try them! It reminds me a little of pearl ex pigments...I have a bunch of those, I wonder how they would work.

Default Stained glass info

I was at the Stamp and Scrap Art Tour this past weekend and Stamp La Jolla had a demo on how to do this technique. I believe they sell the clear vinyl sheets in different thicknesses and they have a special glue and glitter and stamps for this technique also. There is also instructions in their technique section on their website

I have a number of stained glass style images from rubbernecker stamps. I've done them different ways and been happy with the results in all of them. None of them require acetate. You should be able to find vellum in much smaller package sizes that 50 or 100 sheets. I'm sure most any stamp store (brick & mortar or online) would have some.
1)Stamp on vellum using a good dark black ink. Colour on the reverse side. I use SU! markers since that is what I have.
2)Similar to above, but embossing the image instead of just black ink. I've found black, silver, pewter and even gold embossing powder look ok.
3)Emboss on watercolour paper and then coloured with watercolour wonder crayons and a brush.
4)Emboss on regular white cardstock and colour with coloured pencils and odourless mineral spirits.
