Take a Peek Inside!

Good morning, everyone!

I finally had the chance to use my Grand Madison Memory Box die yesterday.  I couldn't figure out what I wanted behind the window and I looked over at my new PTI release stamps that I haven't had the chance to catalog and instantly thought of the lamps.

I'm not sure if you can see it in this picture but the window is dry embossed with a woodgrain pattern.  You might have to click the picture to enlarge it so you can see those details.

I really liked how this card turned out with the light coming out from under the lamp shades.  In order to make it work, I die cut the matching dies and covered my stamped image with the die cuts using repositionable tape.  Then I used Tim Holtz Scattered Straw ink to fan out the light using a foam pad.  The effect is exactly what I was going for.

I hope your week is off to a great start!

So illuminating! *blush* I love the use of the lamps and your gradient coloring choices in the both the DP and inks. Clever. I really wish I could get a hold of the MB die. It's so fun, especially in your capable hands.

Hope you're well.
