Default Christmas card stained glass...what would be best?

I want to do a stained glass look (Stampin up products online) on a card with the holy triptych set for a swap. I have never attempted this before. What would be the best kind of markers to use and what color embossing powder do you think would make it look the most like real glass. Gold? Thanks for any answers you can give me

I believe it is just called the stained glass technique. Basically (from what i have read) you just stamp your image on vellum paper with ink. Then you stamp over the top on the ink on the front with something like versa mark. Then you put on the embossing powder and heat it. Once that is set you flip it over and color your image in with markers. Once you are done with that you flip it over and adhere it to silver paper (to make it sort of glow) and then you can put it onto dark cardstock and it will still appear light.

I am just not sure which EP I should use, black, clear, or gold. I would really love to use copper, but since SU does not currently offer that I am kind of out of luck there! Still would appreciate any advice so I can place my order.

Do you mean on acetate? If you emboss on acetate make sure you get a heat resistant kind. I have a picture in my gallery of a stained glass card I did with glaze pens that turned out quite well just hard to photograph....
here it is

My father's main hobbies are wood-working and stained glass. Typically, that metal you see outlining the different colors of glass is a dark silver... almost pewter-looking (actually, it starts out as copper, but once it's soldered, turns dark silver). BUT, I have seen some beautiful stained glass cards where either gold or black was also used, with stunning results. I think it depends on the color of the card base and just overall personal preference. But if you really want a more realistic look, technically a pewter or at least silver EP would be recommended. HTH!

I saw a few on acetate (yours is STUNNING!!!) but the swap I am doing is for all SU products... does this work on vellum as well?
