This project is inspired by a stained glass window we have in our house. I haven't decided yet whether it will become a hanging or a book cover. I started by dividing a piece of manila card into sections, using a compass and a ruler. I then cut it into sections and coloured the pieces with a variety of Distress Inks.
The bird stamp is from a set by Indigo Blue; it's similar to the one in my window. I stamped it in black Archival ink, and coloured it with Distress markers. I assembled all the pieces and adhered them to a piece of black card with Studio Matte Multi Medium, leaving a little space between each of the pieces.
I then covered the whole of the surface with clear Versa mark, and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. This has given it a very glossy finish not unlike my window. Well I hope you have all had a good Christmas and I look forward to sharing more projects, ahem! finished ones, with you in 2014 ! Here are some of the supplies I've used, available from Kim's eclectic Paperie shop.
