|with lights behind it|
To make the "see through" panels, I stamped the image with archival ink onto plain white tissue paper. When it was nice and dry, I spread a layer of Glue 'n Seal over the back of the plastic center panels and then carefully adhered the tissue squares. I waited until everything was dry before I trimmed away the excess tissue paper. I also colored the back using reinkers and a watercolor brush. I didn't overly saturate it to keep the tissue intact. Use a light touch! I think Distress Pens or real watercolors would have worked just as well. On the front of the center panels I used the "cracked glass" technique to add some more texture. (Can't really see it in the photos but it's cool!) Brush on a layer of Glue 'n Seal over the front of the panel and let it dry. Then you can brush on a layer of Rock Candy Crackle Paint and it will stick. This works with all sorts of slick surfaces. You just have to put on the layer of Glue 'n Seal first or the crackle will flake right off.
The rest is pretty straight-forward. Die cutting, stamping and lots of Rock Candy and Picket Fence Stickles for some sparkle! I hope you've been inspired.
