Pink and Black Stained Glass (by Shirley)

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.

I have a design today from the new Mackintosh Windows A5 set.  I've had a lot of fun working with these new beautiful designs.


The background was created using Seedless Preserves Distress Ink with an Acrylic Block.   I embossed all the images with black, cut them out and coloured with Distress Inks (on my craft mat with water and brush).   I added little strips of black card stock to the background before attaching the window images.

Thanks for visiting and have a great day,
Shirley

  1. Beautiful card Shirley. The bold black embossing is the perfect starting point and the seedless preseves such a great base colour. Super colouring with the DIs, I often think I should do that more often. Lovely design. Elaine x

  5. 'Mackintosh' in colour, design & style. I love the way your black strips echo those horizontal lines of the the two side panels. Your lining up of the panels gives a lovely horizontal eyeline whilst the vertical panels with their very vertical designs balance the whole beautifully.
    What a delight!

  8. I do like the restricted palette used on this card. The twin outer images complement that central lady image beautifully, and the seedless preserves ink in different strengths of wash is lovely. I like the strips of black used top, bottom and in the centre of the card, which grounds those three images perfectly. A lovely card.
