Suncatcher?

Hi, yesterday over at Joan's Garden she had a video on adding glitter using a Memory Box Die. After watching it I just had to play around with this technique. I didn't have the heart die but had recently gotten some Cheery Lynn dies, "Polynesian Sails Oval" and "Lace Rose and Flourishes" from Joan. I used only the rose portion of Rose die. Following his instructions I applied it to a piece of clear plastic. I cut out two of the oval die and glued them together with the plastic sandwiched in between. Here is the front, I'm holding it up against the wall, as I had a hard time getting a photo with the plastic reflecting the light .



This is how it looks on the back side


Joan has some awesome video's on using die's that I have been finding helpful. The photo doesn't show how really reflective the glitter is so it is much prettier in RL looks like a stained-glass suncatcher.
Had fun playing around with this instead of house work!! Thanks for looking.

Geri, this one is so fasinating. It looks like it should be a beautiful sun catcher or on display somehow in a home. My home would be great. LOL Enjoy your evening.
