Windows!!

 The second challenge over at "A Blog Named Hero has been set and this time its "Window Cards".  I have had a lot of fun making this card as it has used a few different techniques.

Behind the window is a panel made with the Meadow Silhouette stamp and my Distress stains.  Next I stamped and coloured the poppy stamp with copic markers and fussy cut out the image.  Thep pop dotted panel with the window has been over stamped and distressed with Old Paper and Frayed Burlap.
































Here is  a side shot for a better view of the window, I am also adding this card to the current Hero Arts challenge for shaped cards and for The Lily Pad flowers challenge.

Hope you are having a great week, I had a fabulous time at The Dancing on Ice show last night, the skaters were all amazing, some of the lifts and jumps they did on the ice were breath taking and Torville and Dean were just mind blowing. I cant believe they are still doing all the tricks at the ages of 54 and 55.  Wish I was that fit!!!


Supplies : Stamps all Hero Arts, K5406, LL007, H5350,CG222.  Distress stains and Distress inks. Copic Markers.
