Happy New Week and Blog Winner Announcement!!!

Hi all!

Happy Belated Birthday to Melissa!!! Hope you had a wonderful birthday and weekend!!! ♥♥♥
I have a window card to share today. I’ve used the Through a Window set.

Happy Times

I made an outdoor scenery trying to get the feel of my childhood archipelago (which I miss every day!!!) with the sea, the sky, the cliffs and some beach grass. 

The background is colored with Aquarell Water Color Pencils from Faber Castell on water color paper. Sooo easy, just a few lines randomly, blue on top, some brown in the middle and greenish blue in the bottom and then add water. Done. 

I painted a large piece of the paper and when dry I stamped the window where the background was the way I wanted it. When done I added the straws – Green Foxtail and yellow foxtail - stamped with Distress ink, Vintage photo. Then cut it all out! 

To get a more windowy-look, I inked the piece up with clear embossing ink and added a few layers of Utee. It gives a thick glass look that shines beautifully.

Happy Times 2

I stamped a second window on Pugnacious Signature Paper an colored it with Copics and cut it out and mounted the window frame over my scenery. I used some 3D foam to get some dimension and the feel of depth.

Happy Times 3

Here is a close up where the glass window and 3D foam effect is visible. The card design is based on this week’s Card Patterns Sketch.

Thanks for stopping by!
