ABC Challenge - W is for .......


This week we welcome our new design team member Dawn to the ABC challenge, Dawn is very talented and I'm so pleased that she has joined our team.

Now, on to this week's challenge, which is "window".
I wasn't quite sure what to do for this one as I couldn't find any stamps with a window in them and didn't really want to make an aperture card. Then I received my order of stamps from Funky Kits and immediately got to work on this.

I've cut an arch out of some white gloss card, then stamped some trees and houses from the Stampedous "winter trees" set of clear stamps. I've added the colour using encaustic art wax and an iron. The stars are a mix of peel offs and a gem.
The stamped image is by Diane Duda and is called "Believe" , I just love her work. I've coloured it with Copic markers and cut it out very carefully.
The sentiment is from an old See D's set of Christmas stamps which I don't think I'd ever used!
I've added some black pearls to finish the card.

I hope you can join us at the ABC challenge this week, I can't wait to see all the interpretations of this theme.
