I'm running my workshop locally in Milton Keynes today. Really looking forward to sharing some really cool techniques with some gorgeous products.
I thought I would share a Poinsettia Stained Glass Window in a slightly different colourway to the norm -
Cosmic Shimmer Clear Varnish Lacquer with CS Intense Pigment Stains, CS Pixie Powders and CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost.
I started by cutting Sue Wilson's Poinsettia Stained Glass Window Die out of Coconut White Card twice. I trimmed one of them to be slightly smaller than the other,
I added Quickie Glue over every line on the back of the larger die cut and ran a thin line of CS Glue around the outside edge using a Woodware Fine Tip Glue Applicator. I popped it onto a piece of Acetate which was slightly smaller than my die cut. I pressed down firmly to make sure that it was stuck really well.
I applied Quickie Glue over every line on the front of my other die cut. Once again, I added a thin line of CS Glue around the outside edge. I popped this onto the back of the Acetate, lining the image up with the first die cut. It's really important to make sure that all of the lines are well stuck to the Acetate as the colour is applied to the back.
So, working on the back, I popped some CS Clear Varnish Lacquer onto my Craft Sheet. I added some CS Candy Pink Pixie Powder and mixed well. I then added CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost and mixed well. I used this to colour the Poinsettias by dabbing a good quantity of the coloured lacquer into the areas shown.
For the 'leaves' I added a drop of Citrus Lime CS Intense Pigment Stain to some CS Clear Varnish Lacquer and mixed well. I then added some Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost.
The centres of the Poinsettias are Rich Gold CS Pixie Powder added to the Clear Varnish Lacquer.
I know it's not really showing up very well but the background areas are filled in with just Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost mixed with the Clear Varnish Lacquer. This pic shows it off a bit better -
I added a piece of Coconut White Card behind my piece once it was dry. I them matted onto Baby Pink Card, Coconut White Card and popped onto a Coconut White Card blank.
