Stained Glass Technique with the Ornament Background Die
It's Sphoorti again. Back with a technique I covered in my first Design Team post for Poppystamps, but incorporating some of the suggestions I had in that post (for you guys and myself!) So, if you haven't seen that post yet, please do check it out, because I used the same technique, just a different card base.
The last time I tried this technique, I used Neenah Solar White cardstock in 80 pound. I may have had less warping with 110 pound, but I was in the middle of a move and couldn't find the ream of 110 pound. So, here, I tried with acetate, which I know won't warp at all with Glossy Accents, and this was the result!
As hard as it is working with Acetate because your fingerprints show up all over it, and it's staticky, it's nothing compared to trying to get a proper picture of it. Especially if you're a photography noob like me. But I took a bunch of pictures to give you the full effect. The card actually looks much better in person, so I hope you try out the technique.
When I do send out this card, though - I plan to use one of those lint-free cloth things that they give you to clean your glasses and wipe down the fingerprints, lint and any other junk that's taking the beauty away from the acetate before putting it in the mail. Hope it helps!
Oh, also, here's a picture of the back side of the front panel of the card. I used a die cut of the background die to cover up the glue that you could see on the back.
Thoughts? Questions? Epiphanies? Please do let us know! We'd love to hear from you! Hope you enjoyed this post and/or found it helpful / inspiring!
Thank you so much!
