Stained Glass Inlay

Hello! Welcome to another Dies R Us Inspiration blog post.
It's Judy here with you, and today I have another inspiration for you. I decided to play with one of the stained glass dies from Tutti Designs. Here is my card:
And here's how I made it:
First I cut the die out 4 times. Once in white, and three times in black. I layered them all together to give a nice dimension.
I attached the die cuts onto a polka dotted vellum panel.

Then I set about cutting out all the birds and leaves in different colors. Mind you, these are teeny TINY pieces. I was beginning to wonder what I had gotten myself into.

Now comes the challenge. inlaying all those little pieces parts into the correct spaces. This is NOT for the faint of heart. If you don't have patience, I DO NOT recommend this technique. Was it worth it? I say yes, and I will be doing it again.....but not for awhile.

Next I cut myself a little sweet frame from the  Waffle Flower Lacy Layers 2 Die set.

Finally it was time to put it all together......whew!!!!

I love all the dimension this card has. I'm very happy with the result!

Here are the dies I used:
