So here is my project. I love House Mouse and I love making cards with those cute little mousies. I decided to make a Christmas card and the thought of a window card just popped into my head.
I stamped the image onto a laser transparency sheet with black StazOn ink. I believe StazOn is the only ink that stamps clearly on transparencies. You can use Versafine but you will have to emboss it because it will take FOREVER to dry, if it dries at all. Water-based inks don't give me a clear enough image, so I use StazOn.
Since I was going to use my Copics to color this image, I had to color on the back of the stamped image. If I colored on the front where I stamped the image, the alcohol from the image and the alcohol from the Copics would've just blurred and combined and made a mess of my pens. Besides, if you color on the back of a stamped image, you can color without worrying about covering up any of the fine lines of the image. Nice!
I used my Nestabilities to cut out the green scallop for the front. Then I adhered the front cardstock and then temporarily adhered a piece of cardstock for the back of the front of the card. Using the next size down of the Nesties, I cut a hole in the front of the card. Remove the center hole and use it for another project. Remove the inside cardstock that has been temporarily adhered to the inside front of the card. Adhere the transparency to the card front, centering the image in the window. Now completely adhere the inside front of the card. This makes a transparency "sandwich" and makes the inside of the card clean. Then I adhered my green scallop to the front around the opening window.
I then stamped the sentiment to the front using some rickrack and some pearls. I also used some Copic Spica pens to the sentiment to make it a little sparkly. I think every card needs a little sparkle, don't you? Oh, I almost forgot - I also stamped the little candies and the other sentiment from the stamp set on the right front inside of the card.
I hope you liked my project and I'll leave you with my "Name" and "Treat" for the blog hop prize:

- The leaves were another stamp I used. I used my chalk inks to ink the paper then stamp the image in a darker chalk ink color, and then I used clear embossing powder over the images and cut them out. The green leaves don't match the cardstock very well in this photograph, but they do match in real life. I hate it when that happens.
It was fun doing this challenge. If you participate in the Copic Colour Challenge, drop me a line so I can go check out your card. Have fun!
