Stamping Out Autism Blog Hop - Beautiful Day Stained Glass Technique

Hi Crafters!

Today I'm hopping again for Autism & it's a very worthy cause. We are helping to raise awareness & funds for Autism. Please make your way around the hop to see everyone's beautiful projects in honor of this cause.

I have used the Beautiful Day stamp set, which I'm very happy to say is carrying over to the new Annual Catalog. I have Silver heat embossed it on Vellum & then coloured the back of the image with my Stampin' Write Markers in Dapper Denim, Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay & Emerald Envy. This is called the Stained Glass Technique & can also be achieved with the Blends & by picking up inks with your Blenders, although you might only want to do smaller images with Blenders, or you'll be able to see the streaks.

When colouring with your Stampin' Write Markers, be careful to make big sweeping motions from end to end of the segment. This way you'll have less streaking. The Blends are a bit easier to colour with as they don't tend to streak as much, but more pool around the edges. The Blends are currently unavailable until the end of May.

I have fussy cut the butterfly. The background is smeared with Shimmery White Embossing Paste, using the diamond mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. The card base is Pacific Point & so is the Stitched Edge Ribbon. The sentiment comes from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set.
