Well, here's the front:
|Glass Hummingbird is available here.|
I made this sun catcher/ornament using two scraps--one scrap of black card stock and one snippet of vellum.
I wanted a translucent look that was as close to real stained glass as I could get. I also wanted it to sparkle. So, to get the swirly, slightly speckled look of glass, I used alcohol markers and metallic cream chalks for the sparkly sheen. The colors from the alcohol markers show very well through both sides. So, to make sure both sides sparkle, I lightly applied the cream chalks to the back as well.
The vellum I colored was then sandwiched along with a piece of invisible thread (fishing line would also work) in between the two overlays I cut from the black card stock.
Now, I have a quick and easy gift that can be hung on a Christmas tree or in a window. This one will be on it's way to a nursing home soon. It's perfect for mailing and won't break if someone would drop it.
Until next time, may you enjoy some amazing creative bliss.
