Stained Glass Technique

The Stained Glass Technique is done by stamping an outline image on a piece of Vellum or Window Sheet with Stazon Ink. Then flip the stamped piece over and color in the image from the back. The Stampin’ Blends and the Stampin’ Write Markers both work well to color in the image. The result is a colored look mimicking that of stained glass.

Instructions

I made two cards to show the differences in coloring tools. The one on the left was colored with the Stampin’ Blends (it’s hard to see the pink color in the photos, but it really is colored). The colors used were light and dark Petal Pink, light and dark Old Olive, and light and dark Soft Suede. And, the one on the right was colored with the Stampin’ Write Markers. The colors used were Petal Pink, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, and Soft Suede.

Both cards are made with Crumb Cake card bases measuring 11” x 4-1/4” and scored at 5-1/2” on the long side. The Vellum layer is 4-1/4” x 4-1/4” and is stamped with the large flower in the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set using the Black Stazon ink. Then, colored on the back side using the colors mentioned above.

I added a 3/8” x 4-1/4” strip of Early Espresso cardstock to the the top and bottom of the Vellum layer (about a 1/4” of the strip overlaps the Vellum). This was to frame the layer and also hide the adhesive when adding it to the card base.

The sentiment was stamped on a scrap of White cardstock and punched out with the Tailored Tag Punch. Then added to the lower right area of the card with Dimensionals.

For the inside, I stamped another sentiment and the smaller flower on a 4-1/4” x 4-1/4” piece of White cardstock.

The Stained Glass Technique is a neat way to add color to stamped images. Play around with different outline images and colors to make something totally unique.

    The technique really showed up well with the magnolia stamp. I like the stampin write markers better. I just made sure to blot them so it wouldn’t smear. Beautiful card you made Mackenzie!
