I decided to start my Christmas crafting. I stamped Stampendous Manger Scene onto the glass from a picture frame with VersaMark ink and applied Clear Bark Embossing Powder and heat set it. The color of embossing powder you use doesn't matter, it will all wash away eventually anyway. Once the glass cooled (I used my Ove Glove to hold on to the glass - it gets REALLY hot!), I applied the Etching Cream and let it set for about 6 minutes. Then it was time to take it to the sink and rinse the glass with hot water. With just a little bit of rubbing, the embossing powder washed right off and left a beautiful image on the glass.
I applied Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky Distress Ink on a piece of white card stock for the background. And stamped the word "Peace" from the Stampendous Encouraging Words Perfectly Clear stamp set with VersaFine black ink. I find myself pairing this "Peace" stamp with the Manger Scene often. All of the supplies used to make this project are available at Michaels.
I haven't quite decided how to finish embellishing this frame - or if I want to leave it as is. Somehow, the simplicity of the message seems perfect.
Before you rush out to Michaels to buy all the supplies to make this, take time to hop along and see the beautiful inspiration the rest of the team has to share with you.
