Faux Stained Glass

When I was creating this card I kept thinking how it felt as though I was creating stained glass!

I first stamped my "Cutwork Daffodils" with white dye ink on to some parchament craft vellum and then heated embossed with white embossing powder.
 I really liked heat embossing as it helps paint in the image easier.  (Also if you get a little paint on the white heat embossed areas it wipes off really easily)

I tried to work somewhat quickly, as the paints do dry quickly.  I wanted to add some of the paints as they were still wet to mix them and shade in areas, rather then just lying them on top of each other.

Look at the shimmer!!

I hope you've enjoyed my creation today! Have a great day!!
