Stained Glass Inspiration

Brenda's inspiration challenge at Stamp TV this week was to be inspired by this beautiful stained glass decoration shown in the photo to the right and create a project.
I decided to create a stained glass look using a doily stamp from Gina K designs. I stamped the design on white CS using a dark blue ink and colored using Copics, Markers, and Jelli Metallic pens. I then wiped the design with versamark and heat embossed. I  cut out the image with a circle die and placed on a mat of red CS that I also covered with versamark and heat embossed. The photo does not show how lovely the glaze is on the image but it really shines in real life.  Click on the photo to get a better look. I attached the design to a silver metallic CS and then to a base card of navy. Added 3 silver metal brads with blue glass stone and the metal sentiment plate attached with 2 more of the same brads.
I made this card 5"x5" that seems just right for my design. I used a sketch from  One Stop Craft Challenge that  had a challenge to use metal with the sketch to which I also entered this card.
