Doesn't this stained glass background really make the shamrocks pop?
This card was definitely one of those learning experiences! I originally wanted to create a window effect, but the shape of the stained glass really didn't fit with any of my oval Nesties without removing a large portion of the image, so I ended up adhering it directly on the carstock. The colors on the stained glass ended up more vibrant when backed with the white, so it was a happy accident.
Not so happy was the realization that Stickles and vellum are not the best of friends; the stained glass edge was a bit rippled once the Stickles was applied. Oh well, live and learn! And keep on experimenting because occasionally you do end up with those happy accidents!
