Make it Monday Review: Faux Stained Glass

For this week's Make it Monday at Papertrey Ink, we were to revisit a technique from 2017 that we may have missed.  I chose #307, Laurie Schmidlin's Faux Stained Glass technique, using Copic markers, the Hexagon Cover Plate die, and vellum.

I used the stamp set "In the Meadow" to make a snowy winter scene.


Die cute the pieces and stamped a sentiment on vellum, then heat embossed it with white powder.  Splattered some snow on the tree using white acrylic paint.

What I learned...I think I would be better off with lighter colors!   I also should have only added 1 layer of coloring, because I tended to try to fix the streaks by adding more color, which seemed to make it worse! 

Such a fun technique!  Will definitely try this one again :)!  Thanks, Laurie!
