I’m still traveling in Europe but have an Easter card scheduled for you, I thought I’d do something inspired by what I hope to see a lot of: stained glass! I just LOVE old churches…and perhaps I’ll be painting a few windows by old glass masters!

The elegant butterflies from Clearly Besotted (no longer available) 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.

Here’s a close-up of all those fun butterflies on my Easter card…

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!
