A Window to the Weather

Hi Everyone
Sue Here



Today I am using the Heartfelt Creations Carnation Florals, Rye Grass and Large Elegant Word Background.

I purchased the double window from The Range for £1.99 and downloaded 2 Victorian pictures from a favouriate site of mine  http://freevintagedigistamps.blogspot.co.uk/. I then cut these out using an arch die from sizzix.The balsa wood windows were painted the white gesso then inked with Walnut Stain distress ink.  Then the word stamp was added with rusty hinge distress ink.  On the inside panel I added the rye stamps again in rusty hinge.


On the 2nd February is when the bottle cap was patented and the 5th is Weatherpersons Day, so I have tried to incorporate these into my project.  I have stamped. inked and cut out 2  flowers and glued them into the bottle caps with Glossy accents.  To the woman I added some lace behind the bottle top.   The other flowers I have stamped out, inked with Walnut Stain and put around the pictures.

 
I then stamped out a Tim Holtz umbrella and a few clouds and added these to the top of the windows. 



Hope the weather stays to your liking this next week.  If it doesn't I hope it gives you time to craft!
