Silhouette Challenges Special Challenge Glass Etching "Rose Vase"

Good morning my bloggie friends.
I hope that each of you had a fabulous holiday.

This morning I'm posting for a Special Glass Etching Challenge that is going on over at Silhouette Challenge.

This was a learning experience for me. I think now that I have figured it out I will be doing it more often.

Sam's mom has not been feeling well as of late. So I made this beautiful vase for her. I sent Sam to get some flowers for it and he bought 2 bunches. That was not enough to fill this vase up. Is so wide it could have used 2 more bunches. Needless to say he would not go back out. lol

When we take it to her Sunday I will pull these flowers out and put them in another vase I will be doing tomorrow for me, stop and get new flowers for her this time getting enough to fill it up.
Be sure and watch for my second vase to post.
It's going to be all about the spots.

I mentioned above about a few learning curves. I did not have any luck at all with the material that came in the Glass Etching Kit by Silhouette. The cutting material was a disaster. The cream was too thick. After some advise from a few DT members I learned that I could use contact paper. Cuts and weeds like a charm and cost is so much less. I purchased Armour Etch and it worked perfectly.

I'm not saying that the material or cream from Silhouette are bad products. Maybe the kit was old and had been in a warehouse to long that I purchased.

So much for my babbling. Onto some pics.

I really love how the rose turned out on the vase. What do you think?

  12. This vase turned out beautifully, I am so glad you finally got it sorted because it was well worth it. I tried to etch a wine glass first time I tried it and oh boy that is difficult because of all the different curves.
