Glass Iris

I love this die - it is so pretty. I coloured using Chameleon Markers, then embossed with clear embossing powder to get the shine you see. I added the framing in the blue to compliment the Iris flower. Some sequins and a crystal gem along with ribbon was added. Even though this was time consuming, it was great fun. I hope you like it too.
This table is the inspiration for my Glass Iris card. At splitcoast there is a celebration - it is their 500th Inspiration Challenge and the site we had a visit to is called Green Wedding Shoes - and a fun site to look around while you are having your morning coffee. I picked this table setting for my inspiration. The colours, the stemware and the softness against the rugged all played a role in my card today. 
This is my recipe for my card, which is a stained glass iris. The metal piece is the die that makes the stained glass. It is a process, but the end results I am pleased with. I used 6 different Chameleon Markers (forgot to layout the grey) to achieve the vivid colours, and embossed the stained glass for the glass look. I used the glossy accents to glue everything together - tough as nails that glue is!
