I Tried To Make a Stained Glass Window

My glass is the glass that came with my dollhouse.


I  taped the design to the back of the window and on the other side I took the clear film off.  Then I just colored away


I think it looks like a water coloring which is not really a stained glass effect.  Its a far cry from the original LOL.  Well this was an experiment and like the rest of my projects so far its not a pass yet.  I will keep trying!!
