Etched Rose Plate

This week the Stampendous DT is using Stampendous Stamps along with Armour Etch Glass Etching Cream to create some incredible home decor items! We know you’re going to just love them and want to try this fun media for yourself.

I have a pretty Etched plate to share with you today.
I made this plate using the Jumbo Cottage Rose and Armour Etch Glass Etching Cream.

It's hard to get a good picture on glass but hopefully you can see the etched rose on there.
 

I got this plate at the 99 cent store.

To etch the plate I started by cutting a circle out of a panel of contact paper.


I stuck the contact paper on the bottom of the plate to mask off a circle.
I did the etching on the bottom side of the plate so that there would be no harm in eating off of it.

I stamped the Jumbo Cottage Rose on the bottom of the plate inside the cut out circle with VersaMark Ink and then heat embossed it with Detail Gold embossing powder

Be sure you heat carefully, some thin things like glasses and christmas ornaments can break if heated too much.


Then I applied the Armour Etch Glass Etching Cream. with a slightly dampened sponge brush. I covered the entire circle.


This is how it looked from the top side.
After one minute I rinsed the Armour Etch Glass Etching Cream away and scraped off the embossed rose and removed the contact paper.


I put some red paper behind the plate for this picture so you could see the etched rose a little better. 


Glass etching is a terrific way to make personalized gifts.  Stampendous Jumbo Cling Stamps are awesome for plates like this.  You could make a whole  set with flowers, butterflies, or snowflakes.

Somebody else on the team will have a project tomorrow and we will end the week with the whole team hopping!

This came out so beautifully, Kristine! By the way, once you've washed off the etching cream, it's perfectly safe to eat off the plates. You can put them in the dishwasher, too. The etching will last as long as the plate does! Great job, Kristine!!

Yabba-dabba-doo! LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this plate! Never thought to use colored embossing powder to make it easier to "find" my etching area! What a great idea! Thanks for sharing this great tip!

this is soooo pretty..
have a question, when you say to scrap off the excess cream, what did you use to scrap it out?
will the cream have dried out or will be creamy?

Oh wow! This is impressive! So easy yet makes such a statement... Had no idea you could emboss then scrape it off and have that outline left behind! New ideas pooping into my head. And I just read that you can eat on these plates!!! Yay!
