For today’s Easter card, I thought I’d do something inspired by what I hope to see a lot of: stained glass! I hope I’m seeing lots of old churches in Europe…and perhaps painting a few windows by old glass masters!

Stained Glass Easter card

The elegant butterflies from Clearly Besotted were perfect for this technique, with a variety of butterfly sizes. There are lots of flowers that would work with this idea too –  anything with small, medium, and large images that can be made into a pattern like this. I’ve used markers to color this, but you can use almost any medium – just make sure you stamp in an ink friendly to your medium of choice. Enjoy the video below, or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube!

Here’s a close-up of all those fun butterflies on my Easter card…the sentiment is from the new Avery Elle Easter Blessings set – the one that was shown on OWHtv recently, with a version of this very same technique! (You can watch that video HERE.)

This angle shows you that frosted, cloudy-glass look from all that embossing powder. And see those little Glossy Accents dotting around the edge? Sweet!

If you’re an OWHer, remember that every Easter card is due in by Feb 28th – not much time left, so hurry and get those bunnies hoppin! I need to pack boxes like mad when I get back, and fill em with bunnies. 🙂
