Stained Glass Easel card 2

     My stained glass easel card 2 uses another one of the images we were given by Anne Fenton and Sandi Hugget over at The Outlawz site to use for their creative freebie challenges. The first challenge the ladies gave us two each of their hand drawn digital images and let us create with them how ever we liked. For this card I made another easel card but this one is a different style. I used a 5X7 card base turned the long way and scored down the centre to give me a short fold to mount my image to rather than the whole width.
     I printed the image on acetate, turned it over and coloured the back side, then filled in the coloured areas with stickles and glitter glue. I let the image dry over night then cut it out. I printed the image on white cs  and cut out the paper image to glue to the back of the acetate to give it stability since it would be sitting up above the folded edge when in the easel position. I really like how this card turned out but doubt I will make another one since it was so much work, LOL!

     Thank you for popping by my blog today, I hope I inspired you to make something perhaps using this stained glass technique, the images come out so bright and sparkly and Christmasy. If you like what I made please leave me a comment letting me know, I love to hear from you. I hope you have yourself a scrap happy day!
