Stained Glass Crane


I was asked by another member of the Viva Las Vegastamps! design team if I could post today in her place because she is travelling for a fun filled weekend. So I agreed and this is what I made! I fell in love with the Stained Glass Crane (#5013) stamp as soon as I saw it and ordered it on my last order. There are so many cool things you could do with this stamp, and so many different ways you can color it. Since I wanted really saturated and vibrant colors, I decided to use Copic markers to color this stamp. They worked great since I could use a different shade for each section.

To mount my colored image, I used I piece of black mirrored cardstock and a piece of pearlescent maroon cardstock, both given to me by my good friend Kristi Parker Van Doren while we were at CHA together in Chicago last month. I embossed the maroon cardstock with a Fiskar’s texture plate and then assembled the card as you see in the picture.

Feel free to stop by my blog to say hello or see my past postings as well as other cool projects and ideas from the rest of the Create & Craft team.
