Inspiration Challenge - Faux Stained Glass

So I had almost a whole day of card making today as I took part in an afternoon shoebox swap. We made some great cards and I was so inspired that I decided to come home and make even more cards!!!

This is for today's Inpsiration Challenge on SCS. The inspiration source was stained glass windows by Frank Lloyd Wright. I am a huge FLW fan so this was especially meaningful as a challenge for me.

For this card I took a piece of 5x5 acetate/transparency and covered it in a double sided adhesive sheet. Then I laid down a design in nonstick punch outs and stips. The background is a cool highlight glitter. I took off the punch masks one by one and added layers of glitter colour to create the design. Afterwards I cut out a piece of black cardstock for an overlay and attached the window onto the card base with foam mount adhesive to allow light to pass through the "window".

Supplies: Cardstock (Bazzill), Stamp (Amuse Artstamp), Ink (Adirondak), Glitter (Glitter Ritz), acetate, double sided tape, rhinestone (Hero Arts).

Hi Lisa

wow..... this is sooooo glittery and fun.
I'm not a fan of stained glass, but if they were this pretty I just might change my mind.
Great card.

Thank for stopping by my blog and for your nice comments too.
Have a great day
