New technique

After getting everything ready for the workshop Thursday evening, Gretchen, Darlene, Bette and I had time to play and below is what we made.  Now keep in mind, we were not making cards, we were learning a new technique that I was teaching on Friday.  This is one of the new Poppy Stamp Window Dies (850) and behind it are cracked egg shells.  It is so much fun making these beautiful Mosaic designs with egg shells and everyone absolutely loved doing it.  I will be telling more about it after the workshop is over, but I wanted to give you a sneak peak at the fun we are having.  Click on the pictures for a better view.

Oh, my...how beautiful. I have one of the gothic window dies that, just yesterday, I made using the microfine glitter technique that you color with Copics. I was pleased with my finished product, but you've just given me inspiration to try something new...TFS...always love your artistry. Jan D., Florida

Gorgeous cards. I tried the egg shell technique but really had difficulty getting the membrane out of the eggs. Any suggestions you found to help with this problem? Great idea to use it with the stained glass cut outs.
