Fall Faux Stained Glass window on Glitter ...

hello Dear friends:

Let's do some Fall cards...

The technique on this this little glitter Bird looks almost like a  
"Faux" stained glass window technique...

usually this technique is done on acetate paper for the window effect (windows on the cathedrals)...
but here it is on glitter paper
which reminds me of the glass used on "Tiffany" lamps... more opaque
don't you think?

to make it, it requires a few steps...
here we go...

1- prepare a whole sheet (81/2" x 11") of glitter, you will have extra for future projects.

on an adhesive sheet pour white "Ritz" extra fine glitter
put excess glitter back on the jar...
**good news: to avoid this step, at the excrapbook expos they sell these pre-made glitter sheets (I got them at the "KrazyKreations booth)
or try using glitter sheets sold in the market as glitter paper
(I have NOT used these papers, but I will give it a try, I do not know if the glitter will damage the nibs, because these sheets have more coarse glitter...I will have to try)

2- die cut 3 shapes and glue them together, (for depth)
glue them to the glitter paper
I did my bird in black cardstock
**note:  you can use stickers instead of dies...

3- start coloring and blending with markers inside the white area...
I used "Copics";  this type of glitter "Ritz" is so fine that it does NOT damage/clog your pens..

4- finished colored bird,
cut around and use the extra sheet for extra projects...

5- make the background,
I used an stencil, sponged the ink through the stencil
and wrap some fine copper thread around some squares...

  4. Très beau rendu ! Je pensais justement à cette technique de faux vitrail mais sur du plastique ou du verre. Une belle idée à essayer. J'ai l'impression qu'ainsi, on voit moins la transparence et la luminosité des couleurs mais je me trompe peut-être. Bravo ! Bisous

  11. Love this technique, Bibiana! I have been afraid to try it because of any possible damage to the markers, but glad to read your report that the Ritz glitters are safe to use! And I think KrazyKreations is at the Scrapbook Expo next month I will be going to, so I can pick up some of that to try!
