Reverse Rainbow Mosaic Stained Glass Birthdays

That title is a mouth full...😁!  I have made a couple birthday cards using the very cool  and super fun new Simon Says Stamp Stained Glass Background stamp from their Make Magic release!...
When I saw the title of the stamp, I KNEW I had to make a card making it look like stained glass.  So...what does one do when wanting ideas about stained glass?...I GOOGLED!  I found some rainbow stained glass, and, if you know me, I didn't need to look any further!!  I decided I would make my stained glass a mosaic rainbow.  Only thing is, as I colored the colors, it became a reverse rainbow...but a rainbow none the less.  Here's what I did.  I did what I often do, put the stamp in my MISTI, and stamped the cardstock with Simon smoke ink(I've moved from Fog color, being able to see the colors a bit better with the darker smoke color).  I then colored with my Prisma, Sharpie and Mark It markers.  It looked a little like this (this was my first attempt, and I ruined it by coloring after I had embossed, and the black ran into the color...)...
I then put the colored cardstock back into my MISTI, swiped with my static bag, then stamped with versamark and black embossed.  I continue to LOVE the wonderful shine of the black embossing powder!  
The Simon black embossing powder is ultra fine, which is essential for fine lines like this stamp...another thing I love, as this is the first black embossing powder I have had that is ultra fine!  You can see the cool shine in the  picture below.  I decided to keep the entire embossed and colored image for the first card, but thought I would make a second, and give it a border, to see which I liked better...
I love both of them, so I put them both up!!  Here's a close up of the black embossing...it has such wonderful shine!!...
I know I say this all the time, but rainbows make me so stinkin' happy!!  Hope you have a happy day!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  1. Love the rainbow, and the mosaic is fantastic -- what a wonderful idea to stamp with a color so you can see where the color needs to be. Oh and that SHINE!
