Here in Ohio I'm hoping are early spring snow melts (no accumulation, yeah right weather man) soon.
I have had several crafty days but no time to photograph and post so I apologize if your mailbox is inundated with blog posts :)
I am entering this into OTWC challenge and here are the colors we're playing with
and here is my card
For the There She Goes Challenge we had to build a scene on a monochromatic background using only one popped up image. I used the window sill and created a brick like background. All the Stamps used on this card are from Art is the Window.
I started with white cardstock and rubbed on some barn door distress ink. I stamped the window sill (brick) repeatedly in poppy ink (Hero Arts). For the shape I used nesties Labels 8. I wanted the card to have a border so I left the top piece in the die and traced the inside edge with a black gel pen.
On a separate sheet of white I stamped the window twice, the bird, the window sill, and the pie.
I rubbed shabby shutters on one of the windows and then stamped over it in shabby shutters again using the Reversed Flowers and Leaves background from Hero Arts. From this window I just cut out the curtains.
On the second window I used a light gray marker to color in the middle sections of the shutters. I used a metallic gel pen on the knobs and hinges. I also colored in the flowers with a yellow marker. I used an H20 pen and tumbled glass to color the actual window. Once all my coloring was done I cut the window out.
I colored the bird using the same yellow marker as the flowers. For the pie I used brushed corduroy, a red marker, and the metallic gel pen. I cut out the bird and pie.
I paper pieced the previously cut out curtains onto the main window then added the cut out window sill. I stamped the bird and pie onto the window so my bird would have feet and my pie would have steam.
I glued the bird and pie down flat then added the whole window on pop dots. Last I stamped my sentiment in black.
Thanks for stopping by and don't worry I'll be back in like 15 minutes lol
