Stained Glass Background

Splitcoaststampers had an interesting technique challenge posted today, so I decided to use it to create this week's card sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps. I used the small flower image from Carnations Multi Step Clear Stamps and a get well sentiment from Kitchen Sink Stamps on this get well card for a friend.

After drawing the stained glass lines with a pencil, I painted them with Distress Oxide Inks mixed with water. I then sprinkled the entire surface with water droplets and used my heat gun to oxidize the ink. The last step for the background was to redraw the lines with a Sharpie. I then matted my stamped KSS carnation image with black and attached it to the card.

Be sure to stop by Maria's blog and see her fun going green design!
