Spring Window Box MkII


Hello again! MkII of the window box card is for another three challenges - CAS(E) This Sketch:


The Paper Players Tic Tac Toe - I went for the right-hand column: Pearls, Birthday and Pink & Green.


And it's the last day of the washi tape challenge at Moxie Fab World:


So here's my window box MkII:


Same stamps, arranged ever so slightly differently and dotty washi tape instead of striped.  I added the pearls to the washi to make a very upmarket window box.  For my previous card I inked the twine with the chartreuse ink to match more closely, by trapping the twine onto the ink pad with my bone folder and dragging the twine through.  You know what's coming, don't you?  Yup.  I went to fold this base card and got a lovely smear of chartreuse ink across the top.  So I just got the pad and smeared it all the way round, leaving it slightly grungy.

  10. Don't you just love a creative save? I think it looks fabulous. Sweet idea to add the pearls to the washi tape - how do yo think of stuff like this? Amazing!

    I have 110 wedding invitations to make during the next week to week and a half, so I won't be doing a whole of visiting and commenting! I will be making time to pop by to see what everyone has created though :)
