I'd been planning on making some kitties in the window, but this juts didn't turn out like I'd imagined! (Please check back for a simpler, most likely (hopefully!) more effective version of this!) I got a little distracted from my plan by playing this sketch challenge in the Gina K forum (not to win, just to play! sorry, I should have uploaded this before it ended to give you a heads up about the contest!) because I thought it would work well with my window(made from classic rectangle Nestabilities and a layer of acetate*) but then I went off on this tangent trying to make a little window treatment with my hatpin! I looped my ribbon around it and adhered it in a few strategic places with glue dots to make a kind of swag scarf, I don't know, I'm kind of on the fence with the result...
The flowers you see outside are from the pitcher bouquet in this month's Free with Three set, "Friendship Blooms", and the butterfly is from "Just So Hoppy". Cats are colored with Koh-i- Noor pencils and the backyard is done with markers and sponged ink for the sky. CS is SU! Chocolate Chip and PT White, ribbons are SU!, DP is Magnolia.
Thanks for stopping by, please come back tomorrow (Thursday) for a project from my Guest Designer Jessie Rone!
Make it a great day! (I stole this from Gina K)
Cuddles and Hugs! (I said that!) :)
*Don't the embossed lines look just like a window molding? (This was MUCH easier than trying to DIY like I did on this card!! ) (wow, I just noticed the date on that, I uploaded this three days before I gave birth to William!)To make the window frame, you need to run your Nestabilitie die through with your C and B plate (remember, "C" for "cutting") then emboss around the the hole with your two B plates (and shims and mat if you need them with your machine, "B" emBoss") then cut around your embossed rectangle window either with your cutter or a nestabilitie the next size up to frame up the hole. Adhere the acetate behind that, then your stamped scene behind that.
