Welcome to the Technique Squad April Blog Hop. This month we are featuring the stained glass technique. Again, I’ve never tried this one before but it looked like fun.
I stamped my butterfly onto a window sheet using Staz-on ink and then colored the BACK of the image with my Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo Stampin’ Blends. You want to color on the back of the window sheet or you will smear the Staz-on since it’s an alcohol based ink.
I really wanted to do this with the Wild Roses background stamp but it had just a bit too much that stamps and I couldn’t get it quite fully black on the window sheet. The retired Beautiful Bouquet stamp would be beautiful for this, I may need to pull that out.
I cut apart my Butterfly Brilliance stamp set and Brilliant Wings die so the butterfly stamp was a little easier for me to place. You can do it with the butterflies all together but it may be a little more challenging to get the butterfly in the right spot.
