Frosted Window Elements of Style

This card is from my Quickie class @ UWO (from January), and features the Frosted Window technique. I also showed this technique in my January Stepped Up Card Class (and created another card).

Basically, you stamp an image on vellum (I like the cardstock vellum) and also on a light card stock (I used Naturals White). Then you colour with darker colours (Rose Red, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight) on the card stock layer, and lighter colours (Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose) on the back of the stamped vellum. You can blend colours together with the markers, or a Blender Pen. Then you line up the coloured images, and attach the vellum layer over the card stock layer with Stampin' Dimensionals. Add a frame (cut with my Labels Framelits) and a sentiment and call it done!

Stamps: Elements of Style, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Staz On Jet Black, Old Olive
Card Stock: Naturals White, Old Olive, Vellum card stock
Other: Modern Label punch, Word Window punch, Labels Framelits
Stampin' Write Markers: Rose Red, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Old Olive, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose
