Simple Stained Glass Window Ideas

Hi Bloggers.

I have a few very, very simple cards with Sue Wilson's Stained Glass Window Dies for you today.

For this one, I popped the Butterfly Stained Glass Window onto a Pixie Powder Background created with Scarlet Mist and Mango Blaze Pixie Powders.

For this one, I simply popped the Hummingbird Stained Glass Window onto a patterned paper from Sue's Classic Elegance 8 x 8 Paper Pad.

The Butterfly Stained Glass Window on Caught in Crystal Background - CS Glue on Acetate, Pixies sprinkled over (can't remember probably Midnight Blue and Peacock Green) then Sparkle Star Diamond Frost. Finally scrunched up a piece of White Tissue Paper, opened out and popped on top.

Buttterfly Stained Glass Window cut twice and glued either side of a piece of Acetate. Sections coloured with a Quickie Glue Pen on reverse and then CS Polished Silk Glitter added. I used Light Purple, Hunter Green, Turquoise, Rose Copper, Ice Blue and Pale Bronze.

Background created on Watercolour Card. 3 drops of CS Intense Pigment Stain in Rich Crimson, Emerald, Blue Violet and Sunflower Yellow into separate mister bottles with water. I misted Watercolour Card with water and then drew circles over it using the ends of the tubes from the bottles, re-misting with water as required. I then blotted with Kitchen Roll. Quickie Glue was added to some areas and when clear, CS Rose Copper Polished Silk Glitter added.

Sue Wilson has a very special birthday today. Pop on over to her blog to wish her a Happy Day 😊

Thanks for stopping by.
