I think this collection is very cleverley named and I really wanted to created a stained glass effect for this card project. I decided to do a blended background panel using a selection of distress oxide inks in a range of complimentary colours, which really do blend beautifully using an assortment of make-up blending brushes.
I thought I would leave the card under embellished because I really wanted the stained glass window to be the star of the show. So I just created a simple topper using the Elegant Twist Ovals Etched Dies. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the new Celebration Scene Etched Dies.
For my box project I did some very subtle blending of complimentary distress oxide inks on a pearly pastel green card stock. I started with the darkest shade along each edge blending in a subtle green distress oxide ink towards the centre. I used the same two shades to add colour the foliage among the flowers on the top of my box.
I foiled the sentiment which is from the Borders and Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plates.
The flowers for this box project were made using the Grand Cinch and Go Flowers Etched Dies.
Designers Tip: I like to create extra dimension for my projects by die-cutting intricate top layers twice and offsetting the bottom one slightly, as demonstrated for my card project.
