Good morning everyone, how would you like to wake up every morning to a view like this out your window? I wish... but I may never leave my room if that were the case, lol! This is a gate (or window) die from Heartfelt Creations and I am nuts about it. I love the way you can open and close the shutters. I'd leave it closed when mailing, but what a nice surprise for the recipient when the shutters open up to reveal the pretty vista inside.
I used a digital landscape from Just Inklined that I got a long time ago, unfortunately I don't see any more digital stamps in their web store anymore! I don't know what happened, maybe I'm just missing it. Anyway, I colored it with some Copics and mounted it behind the window.
Here's a closer look with the shutters partly closed.
The gorgeous papers are from a Prima paper pad. I custom colored some of the smaller rosebuds from Wild Orchid Crafts with Copics too, I didn't have the right color to match the paper. It's why I bought a bunch of white roses, because I knew I would have this problem! Copics work really nicely because they kind of bleed along the soft paper giving them a more natural, softer looking color.
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
