Meowy Christmas

I can’t decide whether I am going to finish decorating this card or not… I made it as an experiment prompted by the latest challenge from The East Wind; I could have got my trusty Copic markers out, but I wanted to do something completely different as a break from all the Christmas card stamping and colouring, so I raided my supplies and got out my old glass paints. It’s hard to get enough light behind it to see the colours properly and I’m not sure if I like it enough without the backlight to add embellishments to it…

It was an interesting experiment and it’s good to be reminded every now and again that not everything turns out as well as you would like it to.

How:

I printed out the Meowy Christmas digi stamp, laid it behind a piece of thick acetate, and traced it with glass outliner. Once the outliner was dry, I filled in the areas with glass paint. I cut the acetate down to size and mounted it in a simple frame card base.

The colours glow nicely with a good backlight — yet another thing that is hard to photograph though!
