I'm writing to you from blizzardy Colorado. Funny thing is, where I'm at...not a speck of snow. Where the airport is? That's a whole other story--over a foot of snow, most flights cancelled...highway to the airport closed.
Good thing I had the foresight to reschedule my flight back to Texas BEFORE the flakes began to fall.
I've been here in beautiful Colorado for a week and a half, visiting my bestee, Jodi. We've been crafting our everlovin' brains out. For those of you that don't know, Jodi is also on the Crafter's Companion design team. So, we pooled our mojo and our Crafter's Companion goodies together and have had ourselves a marathon-o-Crafter's-Companion-creating.
Today's offering is a fun little window card. I made the card into a quaint little Antique storefront.
Let's be windowshoppers! That sure is a nice arrangement of old bottles in the window. Notice the two paintings hanging on the wall behind the bottles? I sure wish we could go inside and take a closer look at them!
I stamped the bottle stamp on cream-colored cardstock and colored them with my Spectrum Noir colored pencils. It was challenging to color them so that they maintained their transparency. After all, they're glass bottles. So, if you notice, you can actually "see" the bottles in the back through the ones that are in front of them.
Oh, look! The sign in the window says they're open! Let's go on in and look around, shall we? Those are nice pictures hanging on the wall! It's amazing what a part of a stamped image, a diecut cardstock frame, finshed off with some magic from the Spectrum Noir colored pencils, and VOILA...you get some pretty convincing miniature antique portraits!!
I think this will be a perfect birthday card for my stepdad!
