MUSE: Christmas Visions #18

Hello Muse Christmas Visions FANS!
Today I bring a FUN technique.

Masking Embossed images and
Distressing inks over them!
Faux stained glass!

Using Hero Arts Kelly Purkey
Christmas Set




I stamped a tree image three times on thin paper and 
cut it out to lay out my design and use as a mask.
I stamped and embossed the first tree on the left
and carefully embossed it in Ranger Gold.
Using a cutout, I masked it and stamped the next tree, 
then the next, with the bird last.
Using distress markers I scribbled the colors in.
To keep it warmer I used kraft 
card stock to finish. 

This sort of reminds me of stained glass...
What do you think?

The price point is great
at $8.00 for this set
and good sized images.
Not that any of us need more...(like me)
Just sayin'!
