Through the Round (well, oval) Window
Or the square window, or the arched window, or any shape window you like! This week on Daring Cradmakers "its Rhi setting the dare, and I dare you to make a card with an aperture in it, it can be any shape you like and can be see through or have something covering behind it. It could be a ready made aperture card or lots of small windows punched out, diecut or handcut or one large window. It could be a shaker card and can be for any occasion."
For this dare, I hand cut the oval shape in the backing card and used deckle Victorian scissors to cut out the inserted oval shape. I used pale green and blue ink squares on the bg, then brushed pink ink on th einserted lacey edges. The brads are sherbet making memories brads, the butterflies are painted wooden shapes, the ribbon is SU! and there's silver pen outlining the edges of the window. The quote is computer generated and says 'If nothing ever changed, there's be no butterflies. Author unknown". The colours are a little softer and more companionable in real life.
