Photo Inspiration Challenge WCC19

http://watercoolerchallenges.blogspot.ca/
It's time for another Watercooler Challenge!
This week is Bev's photo inspiration challenge.
View a photo and... just see where it leads you!
Below is our photo inspiration for this challenge:
 I love glass and used to create stained glass projects.
I actually made 2 projects for this inspiration, 
so look for a second project on Monday.
Given that one component of this image was glass,
I decided to go with glass, literally.
 The starting point was a small ball jar, with candle.
I took a piece of velum and embossed it with the
I Love Lace background (p 175) and white embossing powder.
I then sponged over the white embossing with colors from
the inspiration photo, including Hello Honey, Melon Mambo
and Night of Navy.  The colors are more prominent in 
real life.  For the lid, I used a sentiment from the
One Tag Fits All set on p 28 of the Occasions Mini.
This was a pretty quick gift project.

Isn't it amazing where inspiration can lead you? Love how you decided on glass. It is absolutely wonderful. How about showing some or your stained glass work sometime. Do you have any photos? Thanks for accepting my challenge, Jackie.

I love this, Jackie! It's such a clever "interpretation" of the inspiration piece, and the embossed vellum is beautiful.

Hi Jackie, it may have been a pretty quick gift project, but it is something the recipient will love for a long time to come. I can see the colours you've used and can imagine how much more rich they would be in real life. Photos don't always let us share the beauty that is reality. Great inspiration from the challenge!
