Bordering on Romance Stained Glass

The Bordering on Romance set (in the current mini)is perfect for the Stained Glass technique. This technique works best with a line art stamp, that has clear outlines and small areas to colour. I've used white embossing powder to emboss the stamp on a piece of vellum. You don't have to emboss, but I like the clear definition it gives the stamp. You could also use any colour embossing powder that takes your fancy. All of the colouring is done with markers on the reverse side of the vellum. This gives a really soft effect when you flip it over. I've cut a Framelit window to attach my vellum behind, that way it hides any adhesive. Backing it on to Whisper White cardstock really makes the colouring 'pop'. I've used a Framelit almost like an Edgelit to cut the decorative edge down the bottom.
The colours I've used here are Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz (for the leaves). I've used Whisper White ink to soften the Calypso Coral. Pretty!


  1. I love it Marelle. It's so pretty.

  2. As usual, another gorgeous card. Very pretty and feminine.
