Good morning folks, Claire here with my first sample made with this months new releases. As always there are some stunning new stamps, two A5 stamp sheets with a sewing theme and some gorgeous clear stamps too. I've used this lovely (and very useful) Dressmakers window stamp for this card (you can find it here)
I began by creating a background using a Crafters Workshop Brick Stencil and texture paste. Once that was dry I applied colour with PanPastels (Neutral grey tint, Burnt Sienna and a little Raw Umber). To create the window I stamped the image onto black card with versamark and embossed with white embossing powder before cutting out the window panels. I then stamped and embossed the image onto acetate with versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. I created the little scene using my PanPastels and some old favourite stamps from Home Sweet Home and added a little colour to the cottages with coloured pencils. I layered the window up over the scene using 3d foam tape and then added ribbon, lace, paper flowers and a wooden button topped with a twine bow.
Thanks for visiting today
