Paper and Ink Imaginings

just playing with paper and ink

Sending Prayers Faux Stained Glass Window Card


I am STILL playing with the new blending brushes!

From the top, I blended Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac, Salty Ocean, Seedless Preserves, Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet, and Chipped Sapphire.

After I let it dry, it looked a little MEH.

I taped a stencil over it, sprayed it with a fine mist of water and soaked up the water with a paper towel. The ink didn’t seem to be lifting, so I repeated that sequence 2 more times.

When it dried, I thought it looked like a stained glass window, so a sentiment with “prayers” was a perfect fit. I embossed it directly onto the “window”.

But then, I decided to run the piece through my Big Shot with a cardboard shim to flatten it (all of that misting made the card stock curl). NOPE. SHOULD HAVE DONE THAT BEFORE THE SENTIMENT EMBOSSING!

Redid the sentiment on black and covered the now peeling original sentiment. Crisis averted.
