Create Along With Us- November Release Week Challenge

Hi there!  Over at Papertrey Ink, they are having a release week challenge to create a card using one of the cards the team created during the release as inspiration. I love the window dies released this month.  The talented Michelle Leon created a  beautiful card using one of the window works dies. I used her card as inspiration.

Here's Michelle's card:

Here's my card:

I don't have the window dies yet, but decided to create my own window die with a scallop and a circle die.  First, I cut a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 water color paper.  I did a light wash with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and heat dried it with my heat gun.  Then I pulled out the Kuretake Gansai Tambi Set and used No. 32 (Red), No. 36 (Wine Red), No. 51 (May Green), No. 55 (Green), and No. 91 (Blush Gold) to splatter some colors.  I did one color at a time and heat dried each color before moving on to the next. For my window creation,  I used my Scallop Circle die and the rubber pads to emboss the scallop die onto the water color paper. Then I used a Circle Die to cut a circle within the embossed scallop to make a window.  On a seperate watercolor cardstock with the same paper measurements, I traced the circle cut out from the first watercolor paper onto the second watercolor paper to determine where I was going to stamp.  I used the small poinsettia from Year Of the Flowers: Poinsettia Stamp Set and stamped it into the drawn circle with Versamark Ink and then embossed it with Zing! Gold Metallic Embossing Powder.  (This is my favorite gold embossing powder.  The gold looks rich and bright, perfect for the holidays.)  I water colored the poinsettia, gold embossed the sentiment "Peace & Joy" from the Beautiful Berries: Winter Stamp Set, and did a light wash with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  Using Altenew's Golden Garden Stamp Set, I stamped, water colored, and die cut several images.  I placed these around the poinsettia and the traced watercolor paper with the image.  I used double sided foam tape to adhere both watercolor papers, layered it onto a gold card stock, and then placed it on a Pinefeather card base.  I added a lot more things than the original inspiration card but I like the way it turned out. Hope you enjoyed my card for today.

Thanks for stopping in!
