Flourished Windows

What does one do when they don't have all the going trendy tools? Why they improvise of course! And so I have.

I wanted to use one of my Shakers and Movers die kits, the one with three windows. (I purchased mine from Terryfic Times). Now, I am sure I could have used the window die three times to get nine windows, but I like things easy and knew they would be a great investment so I purchased three of them. Bam, nine windows and the card cut in one run. If you think I am compulsive, you will be sure when I tell you I just ordered two more of these 3-window dies so I can make cards with 15 windows at once. LOL

Okay, on with the card. Having cut the windows, I stamped my chosen image (imagine it has windows too, I see a clear theme here....) called "Scripted Sculpture" from Diva Impressions on an orange/white cardstock. I then added more color with Marvy Matchables #5 yellow, #92 celery, and #9 pink.

Next I wanted some flourishes that are so popular right now stamped on the background but alas I have none. So I took my Sizzix Bigz Die - Decorative Accent w/Flower and cut a piece of fun foam. I slapped that baby on my acrylic block and a stamp was born. I stamped with Stewart Superior India Black. I also cut some doodles from the same die using Prismatics swatch book (also from Terryific Times).

I glued my pieces in place and backed the windows with yellow ochre cs.

Finally I doodled lots of white dots and stripes with my Ranger Opaque White pen.

Is this fun or what? LOL! It was a good Sunday.
