In yesterday’s SCS newsletter we highlighted the Glass Etching tutorial from Vickie Maduzia. Whenever we highlight older tutorials I try to get a video added for that technique.
For this sample I used stamps from Unity’s August Kit of the Month. The flower was stamped in Versamark on the glass bottle and embossed it. Next I created a round negative stencil out of Contact Paper with my Circle Nestabilities. I taped the contact paper stencil around the image and added Etching Cream. After five minutes wash the etching cream off and scrap off your embossed image. Easy Peasy….just a little smelly (I am so not kidding….that cream stinks…not strong, just bad!).
For the tag I stamped the Unity sentiment in Chocolate chip on Very Vanilla cardstock. It was cut out with the medium size tag from Spellbinders Double Ended Tags (one end was cut off)
I inked up the flower in Pumpkin Pie, added Real Red highlights with my marker, stamped it off once and then stamped it over the left hand side of the tag. Next the edges were sponged first in Pumpkin Pie, then in Real Red ink.
It was layered on a Chocolate Chip tag and attached to the bottle with retired Stampin’ Up! fibers. To finish it off I added a bow with Brown Satin Ribbon from May Arts. I am planning of adding brown, red and orange M&M’s to the bottle before giving it away.
Here is a video for the visual learner:
