Windows To The World

Hello Ai Fans!

Today starts a new release called Windows to the World 2015 over at Art Impression Stamps! For my creation this week I decided to make a set using the image called "Day Spent Window" (sku#4584).

I stamped my image on Copic friendly paper and coloured them in with my Copic Sketch markers. I went with this paper as it's green and reminds me of grass which we are just starting to finally see here in Ontario! I created a layered 4x 5 1/2" card with a simple design.

 I decided to make a matching envelope out of a glassine paper bag. I took matching paper from the pad and inked the edges, added a doily over top and then a second copy of my coloured image. I folded over the top and then hole punched 2 holes. I threaded some twine through and tied a bow to keep my "envelope" closed.

On the inside, I used the saying from around the image. I just used my computer to type it up and then printed it out. I like this idea of using the glassine bags because the recipient can then reuse the "envelope" for something else, goodies maybe?
