Whatever Wednesday: Etch Glass Vinyl

So I have had this mirror for about 6 years.  I got it for $1 at a garage sale and I have always loved it.  I have always wanted to do something with it, but never knew what to do.  I painted it brown (it used to be cream) but it still needed something.  I got some awesome etch glass vinyl from Craftvinyl.com
and decided that it would look good on my mirror.  It added just the right touch!!

Craftvinyl.com has 5 different colors of their etch glass vinyl, gold, silver, pink, green and blue.  I used the silver, green and blue.
Here's how I made it:
1) I took an image from the Silhouette online store and ungrouped (ctrl u) the image.  I wanted the branch to be longer than 12" so I put it on the diagonal  of the mat.
2) Using my CAMEO,  I cut the vinyl.  Blade 2 and thickness 12.
3) I removed the vinyl.
4) I then transferred the vinyl to the mirror.  Cool ceiling, huh?  :)
And just like that, my mirror has a little design and color.
I love that it's subtle and gives a little color.

  7. Love this idea! But since I don't have a Silhouette, I'll be doing this with real etching cream on one of my many mirrors. Handcutting a stencil out of clear contact paper works for me, so thanks for the motivation.
