Sending Warm Wishes

I really like the technique shown by Natalie Travis on Stampin’ Up!’s Workshop Wow DVD, and I tried it out on this window card. First I stamped the dove from To You & Yours with White StazOn on white vellum card stock. This ink dries pretty fast on vellum, and when it was dry I turned the paper over and highlighted the outline of the image with a stylus. Then I sponged Baja Breeze ink all over the image (still on the back of the paper) to make the stamped and dry-embossed lines stand out more.

The oval was cut through both the Night of Navy and Baja Breeze layers (the vellum was adhered inbetween these two layers) with the Coluzzle tool, and I added little silver dots around the window with a ZIG Painty pen. The sentiment is a white rub-on from the Chit Chat package. Other embellishments used on this card are: a white felt snowflake (glued on with Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive), a silver brad, and a piece of silver elastic cord.

Thanks for stopping by!
