Stained Glass Window Stamp

Happy Sunday, friends!

Today's card was created for the blog hop, but I decided to share this one for the hop instead.

I love both renditions just the same.

 My 2nd card has some serious clear-embossing.

You see, I wanted to mimic the look of glass and thought extra clear-embossing will add some thickness to the image. Well, it did. It also made the stamped images slightly darker. The colors are much more prominent. Love that!

With the circle die, I was able to use the negative part of the die and masked off the background. I must have added clear-embossing powder at least 2-3 times.
  I then worked on the background with Beveled Square Stencil.

Your stained glass piece is lovely. The clear embossing definitely gives the feel that it is truly glass. Wow, very neat card.
