Beveled Window Panes (from the Occasions Mini Catalog — page 28) make a perfect focal point for projects. Here are a few tips for using them on your projects:
- Attach them with ribbons or by using Mini Glue Dots at the corners.
- Use a full piece of cardstock behind them or cut out a small shape to highlight.
- Consider making the most of the magnifying effect by adding a textured highlight such as Crochet Trim.
- Or focus the edges of the bevel by adding a thin band of colored Stampin’ Glitter with a 2-Way Glue Pen.
For this project, I used the Watercolor Wonder Crayons (Brights) and Aqua Painters to color the Sweet Summer Sale-A-Bration stamp set (see it online).
A key for working with Watercolor Wonder Crayons: use Watercolor Paper (see it online) for the easiest coloring. The Watercolor Paper can hold more liquid than Whisper White or Very Vanilla card stock, and it’s much easier to move color around without damaging your work surface.
