Thanks girls ...Jacque , go into an arts and craft shop and buy some acrilic glass paints in whatever colours you like and a tube of liquid lead .

I trace the picture first then lay it under the glass.... or perspex if its for a card , first follow the lines with the liquid lead and then fill in with the colours , it,s handy to have cocktail sticks to scratch out any mistakes .
I have done this on mirrors with good results ........
P.s don,t leave any gaps in the outline with the liquid lead or your colours will seep through ........ let me know how you get on ........

Good luck :o)
