Dragonfly Stained "Glass" Lamp

I snagged the SVGCuts Boho Butterflies SVG Kit when it came out in August, but life has kept me very busy and I didn't get a chance to make this lamp until now. Can you see the glow behind that front dragonfly? It really works! There's an LED candle stick light hidden inside the lamp base.

The bronze base and the black "lead" are cut from metallic cardstock from Michael's.  That stuff cuts like butter!  And I love the shimmer.  The "glass" pieces are white vellum that I colored with alcohol inks.  I tried using my Bic markers and also my Distress markers, but I just didn't like the way the colors streaked.  So I gave alcohol inks a try and I really love the colors!  I think I need to play with these more (and get a few more colors!).  For fun I also added a few skittles (colored with the inks too) as little glass pebbles on the dragonfly body.

Another amazing design Miss Mary!!
