Hi, Diane with you today with a very fun technique to share with you.
I am going to show you how to do a quick 'stained glass' Rose.
One of the new June stamp sets is "Roses", a perfect set for this technique!
Start by stamping the rose on a piece of embossable plastic with a
permanent ink (I used black Staz-on).  I also tried Memento Tuxedo Black ink
and it worked, though I had to let it dry for quite a while so as not to smear.
Pour out a small drop, maybe nickel size of Diamond Glaze or Crystal Effects
on your craft mat.  Add a few drops of a 'dye' re-inker in the color you want you rose
and mix in.
Flip your rose over to the back side and start coloring it in with a paint brush.
Let dry completely (it dries very quickly, but be patient), then do the same with a green for your leaves.
I used Distress ink refills raspberry for the rose and
peeled paint for the leaves.  Let completely dry again.
Once dry, pour another drop of the glaze on your mat and once again add to the back of your rose, this time do not add any color.
While still wet, add your choice of glitter to the back.  I used Cloud Nine glitter and it seemed to be the perfect choice.  Set aside to dry again.
While the rose is drying find a die that will make a 'window' over the rose and die cut
on your card front.
You will be using the 'negative' part of the die.  I embossed this using a vine
embossing folder.
Stamp your sentiment in Versamark, then coat with Irish Spring embossing powder and heat set.
This is such a pretty embossing powder, all sparkle-y  and glittery !
Place your Rose behind the negative cut out using Tear-ific Tape 1/4", Then adhere
to a card base.  Add your bow and your sentiment.

This is really an easy technique, it is just being patient to let it dry in-between.
Thank you for visiting with me today
