Something a bit different for me

 

Ok, from the first pic it doesn't look like it's a particularly different card for me... but if you look at the second photo....


... you'll see that the window stamp opens out onto an outdoor scene.  I'm not really one for making 'interactive' types of cards usually, and me and my craft knife are not the best of friends!  I'm reasonably happy with how this turned out though.

This is one of the new stamps from Little Claire, which Steve will be demonstrating on Create & Craft TV tomorrow from 11am.  My cards with the new stamps won't be demoed though, because I was uselessly ill while I should have been making my samples, and so mine are late :o(  The new stamps are all from a new range called 'a room with a view' which all have window and door stamps that you can have opening, or just use the scene stamps as you would with a normal stamp.

I've coloured the image with promarkers and then added shading and glow using koh-i-noor pencils blended with sansador.  The paper is from a Forever Friends pad, with coredinations cardstock.  Flowers punched using an x-cut punch, green pearls from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
