Yup, it's time for a new FB contest at The East Wind with the theme of "I Can See Clearly Now." Huh? Not so hard, unless you have glasses like mine, LOL. No really, we just want to see something clear or transparent on your project. Could be acetate, vellum, Glossy Accents, you get the picture. Anyway, I made a little winter scene using the adorable Aurora 'Kitty Trand'.
I've made a shaped card using Spellbinders Grand Regular and Decorative Labels One. The frosty window she's looking out of is vellum I've embossed with a Darice folder under acetate with the "frostless" area cut with a Spellbinders Deckle Oval. The little kitty sitting on the sill is an Impression Obsession die. The sentiment is one of Tim Holtz's new little Christmas Sticker sayings. (LOVE!)
Here's a closeup of Aurora 'Kitty Trand'. (No, I have no idea what that name means. Is it because I'm old? No matter, I think she's just adorable, don't you?) I used the no background png version atop digital paper from Gecko Galz and colored her entirely with Copics with no dramatic shading. I just wanted a soft sweet image.
Here's the dimensional view. I considered making this a shaker, but I would have had to add another layer of acetate since the frost was supposed to be on the inside of the window and I was running out of time. I also would have run the risk of having whatever I put in to shake having a bunch of static and clouding the image so I blew off that idea. I actually cut the turquoise fun foam that's between the layers with my dies in so it made a lovely clean edge. Got some more clear or sheer stuff going on with the acrylic icicles, combo vellum and clear glitter snowflakes and some sheer organdy ribbon. Guess I got it covered.
