bittenbythebug2

happy monday :) this weeks challenge , window to my world, over at bbtb2 was chosen by one of our awesome newbies brenda. create a card or project using any window from any cart. at first i diidnt think i had a cart with one but of course after whining about it to carole and donna ;)  i found one. then also thought about other carts i own that have houses on them which of course have windows.duh me.
for my project i made a tag
i found this pretty window along with the tree cut on the christmas noel cartridge.
i inked it all up with colorbox fluid chalk then added liquid applique for snow. i have ti say once this dries it has a little brownish tinge to it which bothers me. do you have any other suggestions for snow? the snowflakes are a small marvy punch. i used my viva decor gel writer pen for a little sparkle.
i added some branches from a ms punch. the berries are viva decor pearl pen. i love viva decor products. these pearls pens are da' bomb! they do not run or flatten like other brands of  liquid pearls. the sentiment is a stamp from stephanie at whimsical designs ( link on my side bar) snow much fun set. really great stamps. 

thanks so much for stopping by hope your week is off to a super start :) and thank you for your sweet words they always leave me with a smile :) thank you for that :) xxxshelly

Beautiful tag. Love the tree. The snow flakes are a perfect detail.

Shelly this is just so pretty - and it's a tag? I think you should design a set of Christas cards to match!!! Oh... and I am surprised Donna did not offer to send you some cheese to go with the "whine"!!! xx

Wow, this tag is just gorgeous Shelly!! I so love the tree behind the window with the snowflakes coming down. I love the inking, so pretty and adds to much. The branch punch is perfect at the top of the window and I love the sentiment. I think you should make a group of cards like this too. I just might have to lift this from you, I just love it so much! Hugs, Bren
