FS146 Christmas Window & Window Ledge Tutorial
NOTE: There is still time to enter to win the FireCracker Designs by Pamela blog candy. Just visit this post.
Congrats to Birgit (Biggan) for being today’s Featured Stamper! My favorite things in Birgit’s gallery are the landscapes and windows so I chose this card to case. I changed 1) the color scheme adding more color 2) the details on how the window was made 3) the stamps although I kept the same theme.
I know its not Tuesday but would you like the Tips, Tricks, & Tutorial on how I made that window ledge? I bet you will so here we go!
First, I cut a rectangle of cardstock the approximate size of my window. Then I scored 1/4" up from the bottom and then again 1/8" above that. Next I cut 1/4" off each side down to the score line on each side. I cut at an angle from the first score line up to the second score line on each side.
Then I mask the main window area and below the 1/4" score line and sponged a little darker color into that area. Remove the masks and its ready for your window scene to be placed in.
I always make my scenes on a whole piece of paper and then cut the 1/8" strips out. NOTE: I do not just cut once and spread the pieces as I like the part of the image to be missing just as it would if it were obscured by a window structure.
