Hi crafters. I’m experimenting with the stained glass technique which is part of the CAS mix it up challenge for March.
I cut The Kaisercraft texture ragged die a few times from black cardstock. I adhered one of these to a scrap of white cardstock and coloured with alcohol markers. I then adhered 2 more diecuts on top. I used a credit card and heavy gloss gel from Atelier to fill in some spaces. I wanted to frame it with the Altenew fine frames so I left the holes that would be outside the frame without gel. I actually did this step a couple of times. During my first effort I swiped too many times and ended up with lots of black paper fluff in the gel. When I started again I was a bit more careful with the edges of the diecuts. When it was dry I adhered the frames and then laid down another ragged diecut on top but cut away the bits covering the frames. I used a sentiment from Concord and 9th Thankful leaves turnabout Stamp set. I wondered what I could call my third option since the gel I used is really just part of the technique. I felt it needed something across the middle so I put the die under the misted card base and put a silicone mat over the top and rolled firmly with a brayer until you could see the die texture on the card. It is pretty subtle.
It was fun making my little stained glass window so I hope to try some future techniques at the CAS mix it up challenge. Happy birthday! It is the challenge’s 3rd birthday.
