Ink on Glass

october24 032 Large Web view

My sister’s birthday is this week and I wanted to make a little something for her.  So I combined one of her favorite verses with a technique I had been wanting to adapt for crafting and here are the results!october24 028 Large Web view

I printed out the verse on cardstock and layered it in a 9”x9” frame. I then took out my caligraphy pen and ink and started going over some of the lines on the front of the glass.  I really like how the brown ink matches and highlights the colors in the background paper.  One would have thought I planned it :)

The hardest part of this project was deciding when to stop adding color.  I wanted the ink to be seen, but not overpower the rest of the piece. october24 030 Large Web view

  Supplies: CTMH Boom-Di-Ada papers and Barn Red ink, frame from IKEA and calligraphy supplies (see below picture.)october24 033 Large Web view
