Hello Lindy’s Gang. Today I have a technique share. It is one of my all time favorites. You will need some Lindy’s Embossing Powder, and at least 2 Lindy’s colors, try to pick colors that play nicely together so when they mix you get a third pretty color.
Today I wanted to try the technique using vellum paper. I wanted to use the translucency of the vellum to create a bit of a stained glass window effect. To begin, stamp your background with your preferred embossing ink, I am using versamark, it’s a little hard to see until we add the embossing powder.
Add the embossing powder over the stamped image and heat set.
Liberally spray over the top of the embossed image with water and then start adding your colors. The embossing powder will act as a barrier and ‘contain’ the color within that section of the design, allow some areas to mix and give new colors.
Add extra water to help the colors mingle and when you are happy with the combination, dry off with a heat tool.
To make my ‘stained glass windows’ I have cut the vellum into smaller pieces and glued them into a Whichcraft chipboard frame. I have placed a light behind the windows to show just how translucent the vellum is.
These would make great bookmarks, or even hanging in front of a window like a suncatcher.
I love this technique and I think it works even better on regular cardstock.
- Urban Amethyst, Luscious Lime and Caribbean Blue sprays and I am using Boogie Down Black Detail Embossing powder.
