The Art of Window Dressing

When was the last time you window shopped?  Isn’t it amazing how the items in the window really stand out!  You can’t help but to steer that much longer.  The outfit or the furniture that you see, draws you in for the buy!

This display at Macy’s Broadway Store in NYC gives the feeling of power.  The women stand out from their background which screams, “You will see me amongst the cluster background.

Well today’s card should give you the same feeling!!  I’m participating in Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday#164: Cluster Stamped Sentiment challenge.

Watercolor thanks

I used the “thanks” from Papertrey Ink’s Wet Paint stamp set.  I stamped it with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Watercolor is my new favorite medium so I created my clusters using distress inks, water and a sponge dauber.  It was cool.  This technique is called stamp emboss resist.  The ink will not attach itself to the embossed area.  I learned that in my Watercolor Card Makers online class that’s still going strong.

The more ink spots I added to the thank you area, the easier it was for the thank you to stand out from its background.  It reminds me of window dressing!  You will see me amongst the clustered background!!!

I am pleased with how my card came out.  I hope you like it too.
