Iris Stained Glass

This card is my sample for using teal and purple for the Mod Squad Challenge.

The Iris stamp is from Gina K Stately Flowers 8 by Melanie Muenchinger.

 I heat embossed the stained glass frame and the Iris. I colored with various shades of teal and purple using Copic markers.

The velum flower and butterfly are from GinaK Warm Spring Wishes.  The flower and butterfly are head embossed with Judikins glitter on vellum and colored on the backside. The glitter wasn't prominent enough so you could barely see the detail so I colored the back of the vellum. By coloring the back, the glitter now shows.

I covered the entire focal image with 3D Crystal laquer. You could also bend to snap the clear coat and make it crackle but that isn't what I wanted.

I placed velum over the DP (Graphic 45 Secret Garden) and adhered to Turquoise Sea card base.

    1. Thanks! The stained glass is from DRSdesigns.com. You can get on wood, foam or just rubber. There is also a circle and a square. I want to try it on vellum next.
