Anyway, back to the cards I can share. This one was actually made as a German sample, but as I didn't put any words on it, it also made an appearance on Maria's Clarity Take 2 show.
My favourite thing to do with the Window stamp is to decorate the front of the card like a living room. I did that on my Christmas Living Room card that Maria based her demo on and my Clarity Window Cards (the Summer one of these was also on this month's show). However this time I challenged myself to think of something different.
I liked the idea of two windows, side by side, with a scene following through but then I thought why not do them on top of each other? I thought this would work particularly well with the Christmas stamps.
Then came the problem of decorating the front which gave me the brick wall idea - I'd recently bought the Clarity brick stencil for my Gelli plate and though that would be perfect.
I started off by creating the Gelli print, masking off two blank areas the size of the windows so that they would be paint free. I blended various colours on the Gelli plate to give a nice aged brick effect.
Then I set about creating the scenes.
Father Christmas and his reindeer for the top......
.......... and a snowman and robin for the bottom.
I was really pleased with this when I'd finished it, I excitedly took it to show Hubby and his first words were "Why is it snowing in your house?". Dad also said something similar when I emailed him the photo. Men!
This is why it's now called "Through The Warehouse Windows". I love it though and as I've said before "It's art, I can do what I like".
