    Q: Sandy writes: "Thank you for sharing Lindsay's Stained Glass Panels tutorial. I don't have any Gel Medium, can I use something else on the acetate? I love stained glass and to be able to put them in my cards - such a fabulous plus!"
    A: I haven't tried it to be sure, but I think since you're creating little wells with openings of the die cut layers you could use a clear-drying liquid glue as well. Mix in a transparent medium (dye or alcohol reinker, watercolor powder, etc.) to create different colors for the panels.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Andrea has a fun idea for the Quilled Pumpkin Card tutorial: "I can see doing this with purple, burgundy, or green strips for a bunch of grapes, too. A possible greeting could be, 'I'm grapeful for you.' LOL!"
