An experiment

I finally pulled out some memory glass & frame to play with. They were buried in my stash. And I didn't forget about them I just didn't know what to do with them.
Meet Lily. She will be my model today.

I stamped a flower with staz on from Hearts In Touch #125 HIT Flowers. I then tried to add color with copics and they sort of beaded up. Not sure why. I'm telling you this was all an experiment. So I quickly clear embossed the piece of glass and tried my copics again. The color grabbed a bit better and didn't smear. I then clear embossed the glass again. This is a frosted piece of memory glass btw.
I didn't think there was anything more I could do with it so I put it in a frame and called it good. I tried applying alcohol inks to a frame but that didn't turn out so great. I also tried filling one side with glossy accents and that didn't turn out so great either. So I decided to stick with simple. If I become inspired I may decorate the frame a little more and I need to find a matching chain. I think it's a pretty good first start though.

Wow Deb! I NEVER would have thought to try this...it's beautiful! I have Copics but don't know how to use them where they do justice. I don't know a thing about alcohol inks. And I've never tried anything on glass. I think I'm stuck on paper...

Gorgeous, just as it is!!!

BTW, I haven't bought from HIT yet, mostly because I can't decide-I love them all! But I did send a link to my friend Toni Brown because I knew she'd love them too, and she bought two plates. So you can tell the owner that Toni's order is because of you!!
