I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

OMG that is gorgeous!  I am not even a Dr. Who fan, but the colours, and the use of the textured glass - STUNNING!

i might have set the bar a little high as now i don't know what to do for christmas  Cheesy

Wow! Did you ever! He's going to have understandably high expectations from here out.

The TARDIS works so well in stained glass - I never would have expected it. The dark blue glass is perfect and beautiful. Now I'm curious how hard it would be to enamel the Police Box lettering on the sign panel. You'd need a kiln, of course, but I wonder if there are any clever tips for transferring the black enamel on. Maybe with laser printing, or a rubber stamp... any glass workers have ideas?

There are a number faux enamel techniques and materials out there - one is one that Wendy Vecchi using embossing glue, embossing powder, and a heat gun, and Susan Leinart Kazmer has a faux enamel product that creates that look, especially with a bit of resin over top to add that dimension and gloss.  But I think they would not look right on the Tardis.

If anyone is swapping with me & happens to see any of the Pickup Trucks Forever stamps on their mail - please pop them in the package for me - my hubby would love them!  Huge pre-emptive thanks

I have no idea if this would work but Dry erase markers and you can write something different whenever you feel like it.

That is amazing and beautiful! I love the window panes, especially--you can *almost* peep through them to see the Doctor and Rose!
