Take Care!

The color challenge on SCS this week was to use Soft Sky, Blue Bayou and Certainly Celery... I'm not sure this color comb can be messed up- these colors are the bomb! I decided to do a window card for this challenge, so using 2 sizes of square punches I punched through the layers (outside layer with larger square, inside layer with smaller square).

On the inside I lightly traced the window squares to help guide me where to stamp (this worked, although I still had to stamp on 4 sides of white paper before I got it just right- I was stampin' challenged this morning!!)

I wanted the flowers to just peek through the window for a hint of what might be inside. Let me give you a hint if you plan to do something like this: respoitionable adhesive!

The sentiment on the front is stamped on a folded tab punch. On one of the flowers inside I used a tiny bit of glue with our Fine Cosmo glitter for a little added surprise! The watercoloring was all done with the aquapainter and ink in the lid of inkpads. Also did a little sponging inside. The oval sentiment inside is raised on a stampin' dimensional. Hope you like it as much as I do!

Everything used is SU except the decorative Fiskars Scissor to do the scallop
Stamps: Vases in Vogue, Polka Dot background
Paper: Soft Sky Textured, Blue Bayou, Celery prints
Ink: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Certainly, Basic Gray
Accessories: Blue Bayou double stitched ribbon, square punches, scallop scissor (oops, guess that isn't SU), small oval punch, Fine Cosmo Glitter, glue pen, aquapainter, sponge
