I took a solid clear dinner plate, a martini glass, some glass stones  ( from the Dollar Tree) and some really strong goop adhesive, put that all together and came up with this.

I made a cake stand for my friends birthday!
I glued the glass stone inside the martini glass.
I took a picture and cut it out the same size as the glass opening and sealed it in between the glass and the plate.
Sealing the plate to the glass with a tight seal of goop adhesive.
 I'm learning to glass etch with a dremmel tool so I etched their names around the picture.

I painted some trim around the picture and also the rim of the plate. (boy I need to practice the steady hand more!)
I'll throw this one in too....

It's still a work in progress. All the writting is etched glass. The 50th anniversary is the golden one so I sponge painted gold around the plate. I'm gonna go back and make it into more of a Mable effect.The writting appears to look silver but it's not. I placed in on a dark background so that you could see the etching. The plate is clear and the etch is frosted in real life.
