Window Card

The current challenge for ICR is awesome... For the very first time we have a sketch challenge and it was a fantastic sketch and like all ICR challenges it has a twist.. the twist this time being that we had to incorporate stitching in our projects-real or faux..
Have a look at the sketch first...




My card is not inspired by one but two cards.. the first being Tejal's DT card for this challenge and Karuna's card which you can see here. This was the first time I had seen a window card in real and I think it looked wow.. Tejal's card just upped the ante and the wow factor or me...

Here is my card...!!



and now the insides:



There is nothing much to say about this card.. I did some second generation stamping( sounds so cool when you use such awesome technical jargon and I feel so learned all of a sudden.. LOL) on the outside with faux stitching all around.. Inside I did the cloud thing with clouds cut out from paper and then using some really cheap Hobby Ideas stamps and sponge to give that cloudy effect.. I like it what say you guys to it.

The rest are as below:
Cardstock=> Fabriano Elle Erre
Digi Image=> Precious moment coloring page found from the web and then cut to size and colored with my Steadler water colour pencils
I made that nice red frame using my quilling strips.. I try and avoid cutting as much as I can.. :D
I did the stamping from a mini stamp I won at Holley's giveaway using Moulin Rouge inkpad from Unity which I had purchased from Ujjwal.
The PP used to make the curtains and the scallop top is from Studio Calico again bought from Ujjwal.
The inside I already told you how I did the clouds.. Besides that the green patch is made from fabriano sheets and at the bottom I have stamped some stick like grass and flower are from the MICIA stamp set purchased from karuna's store.
The sentiment is from Erum's blog and have cut it using my very reliant design scissors and done some faux stitching around it too.. :-)


I am entering this for the following challenges:
ICRC8=> Sketch +stitching(faux or real)
Fab 'n" Funky=> Friendship
CraftyJc Challenge#8=> Friends are forever
Paper Creations Ink=> Stitching
Paper Sundaes=>Clouds and Skies

Yours comments and highly valued and appreciated.. Happy Crafting guys...

Hugs,
Khush
