Cathedral Window - Marble
 
 

Cathedral Window and Border Dies


 
I stamped the image on Copic compatible paper and colored each panel to resemble stained glass.  I hand cut the final image out and added a bit of Glossy Accents dimensional glue to mimic glass.  I then cut my die out using black card stock for both a base and window trim.  I cut another window, cutting out a section of three "panes" and backed it with black card stock to create my window box.  The base is white card stock, embossed with a brick EF and lightly distressed with gray ink to mimic old mortar.  Dies and punches create the remaining vine, flowers and greenery.  Thanks for stopping in! 
 
From here you will hop to visit the ever sweet and delightful Sabrina's blog 
 
Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs!
