A Little Stained Glass Technique

This week at Come and Get It Challenges, we are challenging everyone to try the Stained Glass Technique. Shell has posted a great tutorial for this technique from Splitcoast Stampers and you can find that HERE. There are others out there, as well, so if you don't want to use this one, just Google will find more!
I did mine on white vellum stamped with White Kraft Ink and then embossed with white embossing powder. This for me, was the hardest part...I am NOT a good wet embosser on vellum...LOL!  Then I flipped my image over and colored in the flowers with markers...there is a little shading that isn't very noticeable in the photo unless you enlarge it. Since the edge of the image is colored, I have no problem adhering the image to white cardstock and cutting it out. Then just finished it off with the die cut corners and an embossed sentiment.
Please be sure to stop over at Come and Get It and see what the other girls have created as well! We'd LOVE to have you join us this week~
Along with Come and Get It, I will also submit my card into the following:

Ohh La La - No backing paper
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a FABBY week, and have fun creating!
Rubber Hugs,
