Today the TTSTV Challenge is brought to us by Ginny and it is
 a Stained Glass Technique. I had planned to use some yellow
 and red, a different image  but just couldnt make it work. I finally
 threw it all away and started over, do you ever do that.The vellum
really does mute the colors so you need to start with something 
that is quite colorful then see how it looks with the vellum over it. 
 I decided to use a more open image and the
  Dogwood Image seemed to be the ticket. I 
stamped it on vellum with some Momento Ink.
 After it dried I cut it with a Spellbinder Label 8.
I used to do a lot of stained glass work, mostly windows and doors.
I wanted to make it look more real so I
added came lines around the image.I found a dp that  had
 a nice tie dyed look, worked pretty well for the stained glass 
effect. I also cut it with a Spellbinder Label 8. Matted on black,
 lavender black. I cut out some decorative corners with a 
little die I'm not sure who makes it.You know how stained
 glass windows sometimes have wrought iron 
decorations  around them. That was my intent with the corners.
.Stop on over and join our Challenge this week, Winner takes home a great stamp set.
