Hey by the way – did you know that searching product number is the BEST way to find what you are looking for when ordering A Muse Studio products online. That’s why I take the time to look them up for you!
STEP ONE: Stamp your image from A Muse Studio Floral Duet with StazOn Ink on Crystal Clear Cardstock. Flip the cardstock over.
Mix your glaze. Pour out some Crystal Clear Glaze for each color you are going to mix. Drip a little bit of Splash! Ink beside the Crystal Clear Glaze. Don’t touch the glaze with the end of the sprayer – you might clog your Splash! Ink.
STEP TWO: Use a small wet paint brush to mix the Crystal Clear Glaze and Splash! Ink together until the color is a well blended.
STEP THREE: Paint your image with the different color glaze. Don’t move too slow but don’t panic either. Just keep in mind that the edges of your image are going to start drying right away. Work from the inside out if you can.
STEP FOUR: Sprinkle the wet glaze with A Muse Studio Diamond Glitter. Let the glaze dry completely and cut out your image. Use 3D Foam Adhesive or Crystal Clear Glaze to adhere you brand new stained glass piece to your project.
Here is a picture of the back (left) and front (right) of your finished piece. I am closing out with a picture of the finished card one more time. Thank you for sticking around with me for the whole tutorial. Come back tomorrow for a May Card Class preview – it’s going to be a retirement party!
