Stained glass window

Hello. Today's inspiration challenge on splitcoast was some stained glass windows by Frank Lloyd Wright. I knew right away what image I was going to use. I recently purchased several stamps from Rubbernecker that are stained glass images. I knew the desert cactus was perfect.

I stamped the image on Georgia Pacific white card stock with adirondack pitch black ink and colored it with copic markers. Since the shading on stained glass pieces is done by different colors of glass, coloring the image was quite easy. After it was all colored, I simply coated the entire image with versamark and clear embossing powder and heated it, so it really does look like stained glass. I cut out the image and layered it on black and rust. And I really felt that it needed no other embellishment.

stamps: desert cactus (Rubbernecker)
ink: adirondack pitch black, copic markers, versamark
paper: Georgia Pacific white (Walmart), basic black, really rust
other: clear embossing powder, heat gun.

Thanks for stopping by today.

How pretty! The colors are so vibrant. You're right, it doesn't need any embellishment.
