Un bicchiere di spumante miei cari

Buona sera a tutti, nel paese di blog
oh sorry got carried away, good evening to you all in the land of blog and no I am sorry to say I am not fluent but just love the assistance of Mr Google translator :) he is way cool and it caught your eye though didn't it :)

This is something I have played with for a few weeks now, glass painting and this is my first creation.  All right this is not a glass, but one of those disposable plastic glasses if that makes sense. It was the best thing to practice on really, trust me.  The outlines are from Hobby Craft and they are there to assist you in your glass colouring.  There are several types of glass mediums I got the pen style.  I have previously done stain glass window creations with my husband Matt, but this on a smaller scale is so much more difficult. I used my copics for some sections but you have to use the very strong colours or it does not show.  Unfortunately I do not think that this will go through the dishwasher and would not dare to wash it either.  But it was fun to practice on.

Here is the reverse
So colourful don't you think

Well thought I might enter this into the following challenges

Woodware USA - Anything Goes
Dream Valley - Things with Wings
Ellephantastic - Anything but square or rectangle
Wild Orchid - Wings

I would like to say thank you to all my lovely visitors who have left such inspirational comments, I love them all

Hugs Kate

Hi Kate,
I just wanted to say thankyou so much for your kind words, they really mean so much to me. Leaving blog world can be quite isolating.
My world was turned upside down for about three months but hopefully we are all on the mend again!!
I love your wine glass but the only italian word I recognised was Spumante from my teenage years....it was the NZ equivalent of Lambrini!!
Love Ruth xxx
