Growing In Unity Day 4 ~ Glass Etching

Posted by Lena Nunn at 8:00 AM
Welcome to day 4 of my Growing in Unity week. I decided I wanted to bust out the old glass etching cream and some plates with my stamps. It is super simple to do and you can turn $1.00 plates into works of art.

I used the Unity stamps Shall We UnWINEd and Screw it! 
If you have never etched glass before using stamps it is super simple. All you have to do is Stamp and heat emboss ( yes using embossing powder) the stamps you want onto the glass just like you would on paper. Then spread the etching cream over it. When you wash off the etching cream it also washes away the embossing and leaves the image where the embossing cream could not reach. Easy Peasy lemon squeezey! The only bad part about the glass etching is the cream smells like rotten eggs (gross!) and its hard to take good pictures of the glass when its done. Hope you can see it good enough. Thanks for checking out my projects and don't forget to comment so you have a chance to win a grab bag of 25 stamps!
