Try a new technique - faux stain glass!

Happy Wednesday!

I have a fun technique to share today.  
Faux stain-glass!

(Oh Christmas Puns)-Oh, Snap,
Kraft cardstock, Doodlebug Design twine,
embossing powder, Tim Holtz distress inks -
(vintage photo, peeled paint, salty ocean),
TPC Studios stamps (Travel Journey),
painter's tape, dimensionals,
heart punch for "banner"ends!

I know there are many different stain glass effect techniques, this one was super easy. (easy...just my style!)

tear strips of painter's tape, attach to your cardstock.
(this cardstock is the inexpensive stuff from Walmart!)

ink & stamp over tape!

gently remove tape and there you go,
continue on with your cardmaking!

Super easy!  I hope you'll give it a try!

The Joy's Life designers are sharing different techniques all this week on the team blog, lots of inspiration!

Today there has been snow in my part of the world so to see a card full of the joys of Springtime and as pretty as this makes me realize that surely Spring is just around the corner.
