Happy Saturday, everyone! It's a rainy, cool day here in Indiana....what a perfect day to stamp away!!!!:) Today's Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast nearly made me shop instead of stamp....the beautiful hand-made jewelry pieces at the Singing Cat Studio were amazing! The colors, textures, and shimmer were full of WOW factor!
I needed to make a birthday card for my nephew, so I was flipping through my designer paper packs for some interesting color combos and came up with Basic Grey Pyrus which has the same colors of this gorgeous pendant. Since I didn't have any metallics to match, I went with the flat colors of the pendant instead....copper (burned orange), green for the grass, and blue for the water, sky, and curtains.
I started out by cutting out the window and curtains using the new Spellbinders/ODBD Windows Die Set. I then traced the window die onto white cardstock and cut out by hand for the outside scene, which is from the Our Daily Bread designs set, Quiet Waters. After coloring the scene with SU markers, the window frame was popped up with foam tape. This was a very fun and easy card to make. I can't wait to use this window die with more stamps!!
