ABNH Challenge #2





The second challenge at A Blog Named Hero is to incorporate a window on your card or project. Since I didn't ink up the Newspaper Owl yet (even though I got him months ago!) I thought it would be a good time to do so, and enter the challenge.


I used Hero Arts' Designer Woodgrain stamp and inked it up with my favorite white ink from Papertrey Ink. The peephole was die cut with some Nestabilities circle dies, and the sentiment was stamped and cut apart for a bit of interest. I decided to add some felt roses and leaves for a pop of color against the kraft background.


It's always difficult to get a good shot of a card with an opening on it. I used a bit of repositionable tape runner to close the card temporarily. Here's a closer look at the card and window.



Thanks for stoppin' by today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Cutting apart the words for visual interest is a winner idea. I just bought a bunch of typed word stickers and now I have a great way to use them. Thanks for turning on another light bulb in my dim attic. (The woodgrain and owl in a hole are neat too.)
