Sunny Window

I love making window scenes! I haven't done one in a while so this was really fun! I am combining two sets from FireCracker Designs by Pamela. One thing I love about so many of the FCD stamp sets is how they all work together.

HERE is how I make the window frame and ledge. I sponged the yellows and blues onto a piece of cardstock. Then I cut them apart into 4's. When I do this, I actually remove 1/8". I don't just cut them apart and spread them out. This gives a more realistic look especially on more complicated designs. AFTER I cut them apart, I decided I needed the shadow of the flower tree. Ideally, I would have stamped that first but you gotta be flexible, right! The water can and plant were stamped on separate cardstock, colored with copics, and cut out to glue into position here.

Stamps: FireCracker Designs by Pamela Sally’s Garden of Weedin and Silhouette Flowers
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Papertrey Kraft, Whisper White, GP 110 (plant and water can), SU DP
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Summer Sun, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Score-Pal, pop dots, Copics, White Prismacolor pencil (for accents on the silhouettes)
