Rustic window box

It's wonderful to have a 3 day weekend, but the sad thing is, is that it comes to end to quickly.  So back to work tomorrow (insert sad face!)

With having today off, after doing some much needed house work (cleaning ceiling fans - wow the dust sure can find it's home up there) I managed to get a few images coloured.

Tonight I will share with you Rustic window box by Mo Manning in rubber at Stamping Bella. 

Image was stamped on bella's bestest paper with black memento ink.  I used prismacolour pencils to colour  and blended with gamsol.  Colours look a bit off compared to the real card, the window is actually more sage green in real rather than the bluish tone it looks here. I cut the image down then sponged some antique linen and scattered straw around the edges, layered it onto some sage c/s then stitched around the edge, then layered it onto some bazzill yellow.

DP is by Basic Grey - Stella Ruby.  I really love the 'older' style  paper from Basic Grey.

Finished off with some glitter and tea stained seam binding ribbon.

That's it for me for today, back on Wednesday with another card to share with you.  See you then..

This is so soft & pretty Pauline. Love what you can do with those pencils & gamsol. Pretty papers too... too bad you spilled your tea on your ribbon though. (lol)
