Window to Spring…

Posted by Catherine on May 6, 2009

…HAPPY PDD Wednesday, everyone! 

I am SO sorry I’ve been all over the place…it’s definitely hard to get command of that mojo again after being down and under! 

I missed the last of the release festivities from Marti’s last stamp series, but I still wanted to play with the last stamp set.  When this card was made, it was actually done using the digital stamp of the image as I hadn’t gotten my actual rubber stamp just yet (of course, it came the next day when the card was done!).

So I was going for a cottage-y feel for this card.  I used Crackle Paint and painted aaaall over the whole base of the card and my “window”.  I was thinking the inside of a cabin…with walls made of wood and old, peeling paint…that was the look I was going for anyway.  I helped my crackle paint along with my heat gun because I am that impatient, and once it was dry, I took my Paint Dabber and very lightly ran it over the “walls” for some kind of look that I’m looking for….maybe like a white washed look???

I coloured my image in with Copics and fell back on tne wonderfully easy, but awesome impact-giving cloud technique for the sky and mounted my image with the “window” using dimensional foam.

I tried to get a little creative with the “curtain” for my window, but as you can TOTALLY see, my sewing skills leave much to the imagination…

Of COURSE Pez-a-Blings had to make it into the mix somehow too!

Anywho, that’s it for me today!  If you haven’t had a chance, please make sure you head on over to Pez-a-Doodle Designs today or within the next few weeks, she’s released a bunch of new goodies already, but if you can believe it, there’s MORE coming! *giggles* It’s a seeeecret, but it’ll be a good one – and I’m not just saying that because I had a little hand in it….*LOL*

Thanks for dropping by, I’m planning on staging an all-out manhunt for my mojo, so I’m hoping that I’ll be back in full force ASAP!  Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
