This tutorial is my own creation, with helpful tips from Diane and Fran.  Materials needed are HERE   (Some of my glass tiles, my gold Super Blade Pro preset, a gold fill, and a pattern created by Chantal Paul.  Lots of beautiful free patterns there.  Let's see what we can create using his jonquil pattern.

1.  Place your pattern in your PSP workspace.  Check it carefully to make sure all lines are connected.  (Sometimes you have to connect

lines with the pen tool)

2.  Choose the colors of stained glass you want to use.  (I have some on my Sharing page if you wish)  For this tutorial, I have included the

glass patterns for you.

3.  Open your pattern in PSP.  We must get rid of the white background. If it is not a raster layer, convert it.  Click on the outside

white portion of the image. You'll see marching ants. Selections invert.  Copy as a new image.  Now the background is transparent.

You may delete the author's info, but please give credit in your tags.

4.  Place your yellow glass patterns in the material palette, 0 and 150

5.  Duplicate your image.

On your duplicate copy, using the magic wand, tolerance set at 20, mode=add, click on each one of the outer petals, and

fill with the cornflower yellow.

6.  Using the magic wand again, click on the inner petals and fill  with the other yellow glass.

7. Change your foregraound pattern to the tangerine color, 0-150.  Click on the inner portion and fill with the tangerine glass.

This will leave the outer areas, which you can use any colors you wish.  I chose two shades of blue.

Looking good!  But we need to give the edges a leaded look.  Now comes the fun part. 

8.  Hide the glass image, and go to your original image.

Using your magic wand, click on a black portion of the image.  I chose the very center black

dot of the flower.  Go to selections: modify: select color range.  You can play with the settings to make sure all black

areas are selected.  This is what I used:

9.  Go back to selections, and modify, selection borders,  (Tip, this determines the size of your edging.  Using PSP, I used a

4 border width, and with SBP a 3)

10.  Add a layer


A.  Fill with a gold gradient, invert, delete.  You'll just have the outline of your image.  Deselect.

B.  Go to 3d effects, inner bevel and use these settings:

Open your glass image, make sure that the glass and edging align correctly.  Merge visible.

C.  Result using PSP

For Super Blade Pro:

A.  Fill with gold gradient, invert and delete.  You will have the outline in gold, but it is flat without a bevel.

B.  Select all, float.

C.  Go to Super Blade Pro and find your RRGoldWire preset.  Apply the preset.  Deselect.

D.  Open you glass image,  make sure of the alignment, merge visible,  and you should have something like this:
