World Outside Your Window


Created for the Mixed Media Monday Challenge where the theme is Feathered Friends. I started by sponging Distress Ink in Antique Linen onto matt cardstock. Next I stamped the main image in black, and sponged around it in Tea dye & Vintage Photo. I then masked the image to stamp a script background in Vintage Photo. Next I sponged Walnut Stain around the edge of the card, and stamped the small birds in black. Finally, I cut out the text, edged t in Vintage Photo and added it to the card.
