IO Provance Window

Hello friends and welcome to my blog!  Instead of simply collecting dies, stamps and paper, lately I've been using my stash.  If I'm going to prove to my husband that I'm not just the proud owner of a wonderful craft collection, I thought I'd finally start using the blog he helped me create a few years ago. 

This is my first time using IO's window die. I'm not sure the photo shows it but the window has a piece of clear plastic on the inside for glass.  I used a lot of foam tape to add dimension. The shutters are popped higher on the sides so they look as though they are partially open. 

The roses were created using Impression Obsession's Spiral Flowers die.  Before rolling them with my quilling tool I sprayed the roses with red smooch spritz and the spray was enough to color the white die cuts.  It's difficult to see but they do shimmer. Then I formed the roses using a quilling tool.  I colored the white organdy ribbon red with some leftover spritz on my craft mat.

I cut the leaves from Impression Obsession's leafy branch die and colored them with Copics. I punched a piece of yellow cardstock with the scalloped EK success punch and then rolled the paper through my crimper before adhering it to the inside of the window.

I used Distress Ink on the window, shutters and flower box and used Kraft paper (that I brushed with more distress ink) for the background.
