Stained Glass Technique
Supplies: Outlined Stamp of choice, Vellum, VersaMark, Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Stampin’ Write Markers
Step 1: Rub Embossing Buddy over vellum. This will help keep Stampin’ Emboss Powder where it belongs on the stamped image.
Step 2: Ink stamp with Versamark™ and apply white or darker Stampin’ Emboss Powder over it.
Step 3: Using a Heat Tool, heat the Stampin’ Emboss Powder until it melts. (Note: if using the NEW Heat Tool with the 2 settings – use the low setting.)
Step 4: Flip vellum over and color the back of the image with markers. Let it dry.
Step 5: Adhere the vellum piece to neutral cardstock, making sure the embossed side faces up.
