I made a card for the latest challenge at Papertrey Ink, #150 Window Screen Cards. A really fun and made me think kind of challenge. Instead of using another die cut as the 'screen' I chose vellum so at least you could still (kind of) see the scene through the window. It's a fun technique and even if you don't try it, you really should watch the video as Melissa Phillips creates the most beautiful card!
And here is mine:
I used the City Scene stamp and die sets available from Papertrey Ink as well as the Tag-Its #2 stamp set for the sentiment. I will admit I do have to practice a bit more in the 2 step stamping, but all in all I do like how the buildings came out. I have looked at their gallery and the DT has made some beautiful cards using these sets.
The window and frame were made by using the Spellbinders Lacy Squares die, I just cut out the center portion to create the window. Popped that up on 3D foam squares and placed my buildings behind it. Added the tree line and layered that with designer paper, a little Bakers Twine and some lace complete my window scene.
A really FUN technique you should give it a try, it will work with so many different stamp sets for any type of occasion!
Thanks so much for stopping by, later this morning I will be back on the road! See you in a few!
