Faux Stained Glass Flower card

Hello there friends!
I tried a new to me technique called
Faux Stained Glass, and it was
very fun to do!

Here's what I created:

and the inside:

For my card, I used the Spring Flower Layering die. I cut the solid die from a
background I had previously made using powder dyes and spritzing with water.
I cut the outline die 4 times, stacking and gluing 3 of them together then to the 
solid die cut. I filled all of those teeny tiny bits with Deco Art Media Liquid Glass,
and left it to dry overnight. The last outline die was heat embossed in gold embossing
powder before adhering to the rest of the stack. 
I stamped a grungy image stamp multiple times on my card base 
for more interest behind the flower. After stamping the sentiment,
I glued the flower to my card base.

Here's a couple close ups:

That water colored background with the Liquid Glass really does
look like stained glass!

That's all for now. You made it to the end! Thanks for
visiting and I hope you have a great evening!

Hello Chris: I'm popping up late, so sorry my dear, I had to deal with some family stuff, you know how it is, sheeesh!!
Anyway, I love your stain glass flower, I love the depth you achieved with all of those layers, this flower looks so real that it could go perfectly on a window.
The colors are beautiful, the combination of blue and purple always gets amazing results.
The simple green behind this flower is the perfect background.
Love it and I'm getting very fond of this technique, its fun to do indeed.
