155. Stained Glass Suncatcher

Hello and welcome! πŸ’•

The Floral Butterfly Collection is so versatile, my inspiration on this weeks blog was to use alcohol inks and clear cardstock to create a stained glass effect suncatcher and what perfect timing to show this as we have been having the most beautiful sunshine here in the UK. 😍

Die-cut a Large Floral Butterfly in clear cardstock. Die-cut the two largest Floral Butterfly dies taped together 2no. in black cardstock. Die-cut the decorative Large Floral Butterfly in black cardstock 2no.
Use alcohol inks and splash onto clear cardstock, let the ink move and blend together and dry naturally. Adhere multiple layers of the decorative butterfly wings together and colour with wax to give a leaded window effect. Adhere to the front of the butterfly together with the frame (if you adhere separately be careful that the insert will fit within the frame). Adhere the black frame to the back of the butterfly (inked side) to match the front. Add gems to the front of the Large Butterfly.
Stamp in versamark the Small Floral Butterfly onto black cardstock and silver heat emboss, die-cut. Punch and secure eyelets at the top of the butterfly and add chain. Link the Small Floral Butterflies to the bottom of the Large Floral Butterfly.
