Stained Glass Technique With Stencils

Stained Glass Technique With Stencils

Hello friends! Katy here with a fun and simple stencil technique. 

Today I am sharing how I created a stained glass effect with just a couple supplies.

For these cards I used the Floral Stained Glass Stencil (Egg Window), Ins & Outs Quatrefoil Stencil with the Latte Lace Stencil (Pinky Purple card)  and the yellow/orange hexagon card is also from Miss Ink Stamps, but it may have been a freebee or an unreleased one so it is not available in the shop, unfortunately. 

For the egg window and the quatrefoil window I traced the shape with a pencil onto my card base and layering panel and then used my Scan n' Cut to cut them out. This is a great way to stretch your masking stencils to get more use out of them. 

One of the things I forgot to mention in the video, When I put the cards together I flipped the acetate so the smooth side is on the outside of the card. When you open the card the texture is on the inside so it feels like glass. If you do not want to feel that texture, add another piece of acetate before adding your window layer to the card base. 

Here is an up close and "open" picture to see the stained glass window. In the video linked below, I share more photos of each of the cards.
