Technique Swap - Tinted Liquid Glass

This card was made using the May Stamp of the Month and the Dotty For You paper pack both specials this month you can obtain for only $5 each with qualifying purchase. I want to show you how I created this card and the liquid glass technique.

First you need to ink the edges. I used the twilight color and a sponge dauber.
Next I sprayed a pearl paint and water mixture on the mat area to create a little shine.

Using a waterbrush and ink pads I colored in my stamp being sure to not put out too much water and smear my image.

I used only the two colors to color my image.

Next add some liquid glass to a craft jar.

Then add 1 drop of re-inker color.

Mix it up with a craft stick or piercing tool.

Using the piercing tool transfer the colored liquid glass to the image. And you are finished.
I used some 3D foam tape behind the upper edges or my flowers to make them pop.

  1. That liquid glass adds such a wonderful element! Another technique I must try! I need to quit my day job so I have time to do all these wonderful things!
