Hummingbird Stained Glass

 Happy New Year's Eve!  I found this pretty stained glass card I missed putting on the blog so thought I would share it today!  I started by cutting the Hummingbird Stained Glass in white and leaving a wide margin on it.  I glued a piece of acetate to the back of it.  I used the Crystal Tints to fill in the sections on the die cut from the top.  Once it was dry, I die cut one more and glued it to the base die cut to cover any areas where the tint got on the die cut.  I cut a circle with a sticky adhesive sheet attached to it, then peeled off the backing paper and coated it with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz.  I attached the circle to another piece of white card then added mounting foam around the back of the Hummingbird die where I left the wide border.  I attached the die cut over the other piece of white card, lining it up so the sun was over the glittered circle.  The card was completed with simple white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 5 1/2"  x  7" in size.  All for now.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, an amazing creation which is right up my street, I love the difference section being coloured and the stunning sun in the background, I can imagine that this photo doesn't do it justice and to see it in real life would be stunning. On my list of ones to make in 2021.

Happy New Year to you Sue and Colin and your families.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx said...

Hi Sue and everyone, ohh I must have missed all these dies. The stained glass look is very beautiful and the crystal tints are perfect for this look. I made my own stained glass window at Christmas for a card and the crystal tints would have been perfect if I had any lol.
