Hi Everyone, I thought I'd do a tutorial about the Memory Glass pieces I used on my "SteamPunk Butterfly" Reverse Canvas. These are so fun to work with!
Here's a photo of the items you'll need for this project:
Step 1: Use some Embossing Ink on your stamp and place it where you want it on the piece of glass. Then use some Embossing Powder and use a heat tool to set it.
Step 2: After the stamping is dry I decided to give it a more grungy and aged look so I misted it with some Smooch (Orange).
Step 3: After letting the mist dry I also dapped some Tim Holtz Distress Stain (Vintage Photo) to complete a more aged look to the glass.
Step 4: After the glass is completely dry it's time to put the glass into the frame and tape the frame. I used the 1/4" tape.
Step 5: After taping the foil around the frame I used some Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks to color the foil. I used a cotton pad on my ink applicator and inked it with a few drops of each color and then dapped the foil with the pad. I did this several times, letting it dry between applications.
You can also use a small photo, dye cut, or whatever you'd like. I used a small die cut from Graphic 45.
Thanks for taking a peek, this is really a fun embelishment to work with because they're so small that you can add them to a page with ease!!
