Stained glass and first experiments with utee

My son's cakes that he made for the church stall on Saturday sold well. Whilst we were there I took some photos of the stained glass arched windows they have...they look absolutely amazing with the light shining through them and are a work of true craftsmanship. I love the colours and so did my son and he drew some lovely pictures.
I had a play with utee before. I used Sid's (UK Stampers link) technique of mixing thick embossing powder with a few drops of alcohol inks then heating it to get coloured utee. I think utee is so expensive so I valued this money-saving tip! I have found several utee demos by Suze Weinberg on you tube so think I will have a go at I am not really happy with my first attempts but you have to start somewhere!!!

Your UTEE attempts are lovely Lorraine, great colours!
Those windows are gorgeous, and I'm really excited cos I'm doing a stained glass course next week because a group of us are planning to make a window for our church!
