It is Paula-Kay here on Tutorial Tuesday. Today I have a stamping technique
called Shattered Glass to show you.
It is easy and fun and makes a unique card.
You will need a few supplies: inks, stamps, hydra sponge
or stipple brush, masking tape, and cardstock.
The first step is to tear thin strips of masking tape and apply to the card front in “glass” pieces. They can be as jagged as you desire.
Sponge or stipple the cardstock with inks until you get the desired coverage.
Stamp your images on the cardstock and over the masking tape.
Now you are ready to gently remove the masking tape, leaving the shattered glass effect.
I wanted my saying to be read without a tear, so I stamped it on top
the shattered glass effect.
Now you can complete your card as desired.
I added some Hemingway Hardware and also Hemingway patterned cardstock. The white cardstock on which the image is stamped is mounted on a piece of brown cardstock.
Here’s a close up shot of the finished card. I hope you enjoy this fun stamping technique.
