Stained Glass

For the Dezinaworld challenge this week we were to do stained glass. I felt a little intimidated by this but then thought about swap I am in with an ocean theme. So I made two "stained glass" ATCs of lighthouses.

I had already used acrylic paint to put a green/blue background on the cards because I was going to decorate them in a different way. I went on line and found some ideas for stained glass and found the lighthouse. I then used a black marker to draw a similar image on the cards. I used Derwent Inktense pencils to color in the glass adding water to blend the colors and make them a bit more luminous. I went back over some of the lines with the marker. I sealed them with a spray sealant but before it dried I sprinkled on a bit of light blue glitter.

They turned out more interesting than I expected and I'm excited to try the Inktense pencils on more "stained glass."

Thanks, June, for the inspiration.
