Faux Glassine Technique Featuring 7 Gypsies & Prima

On yesterday’s post on the Sunny Stampin’ Blog – I showed a card that featured a technique which I came up with called Faux Marbled and Stained Glassine.  In that post I mentioned that the Faux Marbled and Stained Glassine technique actually evolved from a simple Faux Glassine technique I created.  The two techniques are very similar.  The difference is in the transparency – the faux marbled and stained glassine is more transparent – and this is a result of a slight difference in how the technique is done.

I used the faux glassine piece I created to make this stitched pocket on the front of today’s card.

I’ve filmed a video for both variations of the faux glassine technique, but unfortunately with all the running around I’ve had to do over the last few days, I haven’t yet had time to finish editing and uploading the Faux Marbled & Stained video.  You can watch the Faux Glassine video below.  I’ll have the other video up tomorrow on the Sunny Stampin’ Blog (www.andreawalford.com).


Because of the length of the videos and the editing time, I’m only going to put the glassine techiques up on the blogs.  A video of the entire project (both this one and the one on Sunny Stampin’) from start to finish will be available for viewing in the Paper Crafter’s Library for members.
