Creating a Scene...

Not its not what it sounds like...but have been on a spree on creating scenes...especially after getting my new distress inks and hero arts stamps...I created 5 card fronts in 2 hours..but those are still awaiting cards...that for the card that makes me squeal in happiness everytime I look at it...

This card is for Hero Arts August challenge - to create a scene...

Ever since I found a wood-grain texture paper from a local store, I have been dying to use it...and this was the perfect opportunity!!This card is for my BFF since school days...but always a phone call away...haven't met in a quite a bit of years...but that doesn't stop friendship...


I love this CS...but it was a very pale beige make it look like actual boards, I cut apart the strips and distressed them with Vintage photo..the ink brings out the texture of the CS..
The curtains are parchment papers, cut free hand and colored with bic-markers...and the frame around the window (which looks lavender, but is brown) is popped up on dimensionals. 
The flowers stamped at the bottom of the card are from the set- be happy and the grass is from that set too...I stamped the flowers on white CS,colored with Niji Pearlescent paints and paper pieced on the card.
The beautiful beads in the center of the flowers and the butterflies are from Pie Lane Studio.

This is the inside of the card...this is what I was playing around with..distress inks, and the new hero arts silhouette stamp- Garden bouquet..I love the contrast of black on the background...inks used for the background are peeled paint, shabby shutters, broken china and tumbled glass..
And I must say, if I didn't have the would have been so tough to place this perfectly...

The sentiment is from the Be happy set...and goes perfectly for the challenge on Crafty JC-Friends are forever!! and for the Wee Memories - Dare to color challenge

If there is any other thing you would like to know, as always, feel free to ask!!

Just a little pic to show you the metallic sheen in the watercolors that I mentioned in the previous post..and of course the gorgeous little butterfly!!!
