Stained Glass Color Inspiration.




For this week's Color Inspiration I decided to try the Stain Glass technique again. I really like this technique and think it suited the design of my card well. This is also my card for yesterday's SCS sketch challenge. I really thought the best way to do the three panels was to do one stamp and divide into three separate pieces rather than trying to find three individual images that would work well together. I chose Chocolate Chip as my base and then put a strip of Pumpkin Pie, then Certainly Celery and finally the Taken with Teal at the bottom. I embossed the "Stitched" background onto a piece of vellum with versamark and copper powder and then colored the reverse side in with various markers. I cut it into three equal pieces and then attached each to a piece of Whisper White paper and then to it's respective color piece. I decided that the image of the background stamp was enough that I really didn't need to do another image for the remaining square of the sketch, so I decided to just make that the sentiment. Finally, I added the ribbon and then Prima flowers on the side with the antique copper brads and finished the card.
This is the first card that I've made for this month's new SCS Cards for a Cause. Follow the link to find out more information about this month's cause and how you participate.
