Caught in Crystal Card

One of my favourite techniques is caught in crystal. This is one of my many cards I have created for my stamping classes.


A4 white cs,
A5 lilac, silver, pink & white cs,
A5 acetate,
Black Stazon
Purple organza,
A selection of stamps,
Lumiere in 4 colours
Fine glitter,
Heat gun
White mulberry paper
and floor polish.

You stamp your image with black Stazon on the acetate, make sure it is dry.
Turn the acetate over then apply a thin layer of floor polish.
Sprinkle some fine glitter over the image.
Lay the piece of white mulberry paper over the floor polish and glitter, rub down with your finger.
Apply a coat for floor polish.
Then add some of your Lumiere, gently rub in with your finger, until the whole image is covered. Be careful not to muddy your colours.
Then apply another layer of floor polish.
Gently dry with your heat gun.
Then apply a final coat of floor polish to seal everything.
Then heat again to dry.
When you get to this point your work must be dry before you can continue.
Trim the excess of your image, the stick to a piece of white cs.
Cut your image to size.
Layer you image up and continue to make your card.

Hope you will have ago at this fab technique if you need any help then please ask.

Happy stamping!
