*Proud to be a Spotlight Artist for the City Crafter Challenge Blog*
I've always wanted a window die and couldn't find one. Finally the lady at our Farmer's Market ordered one in for me and I'm thrilled to use it. The bonus is that I can enter this card into a challenge that appears to be made for it. It's called "I see clearly" and requires the use of vellum, acetate, clear plastic, etc. For my card, I used the acrylic window sheet for the panes of my window. Besides that, I used some of the modelling paste mixed with a few drops of Smoky Slate ink and my bricks stencil. Before I added that to my Whisper White cardstock, however, I pencilled in the window shape so that the inside, where the panes would be, would be clear.
For inside the window, I stamped the birds in the nest from the World of Dreams stamp set. That, plus the sunset colours added with a stamp from the Work of Art stamp set made the perfect view through the panes.
I used a base of Naturals White followed by a layer of Basic Black. Then I added the Whisper White with the modelling paste bricks and the window on it. The sentiment from the hostess Good Greeting stamp set was perfect.
Overall, I think the vellum leaves really give this card a finishing touch.
