TD02 Birds & Windows

Good Morning! Welcome to the 2nd Tiffany Doodles challenge! Now, before I get on to the details of this challenge, I want to wish Tiffany a wonderfully happy birthday! Make sure you stop by her blog and give her some birthday love!

This month we challenge you to a theme of birds & windows. You may interpret that however you like. You may use any stamp you like for this challenge (it doesn’t have to be a Tiffany Doodles stamp, but it sure would be cool if it was!!) Tiffany has all kinds of bird stamps and a couple of window stamps too! She also has tons of freebies for inspiration! You have until the end of the month, July 31, to play!

When I thought about this challenge, I decided to make a scene using a handful of wonderful images.

This is the outside of the “house” looking in. 🙂 I scored my Bashful Blue to make it appear as siding (unfortunately, you can’t see these lines very well). Then I cut out a window using a Nestie and made the “glass” with a piece of acetate. I printed off shutters, colored and cut them out. The cute bird is from the Cute Birdy Hugs set. The sentiment is from the PaperTrey Ink’s Boards & Beams set.

Inside I created a living room scene. I printed the couch and the kitty tail images, aligning them to appear in the window. The couch is paper pieced. I drew in lines to make walls and the ceiling. The walls are sponge “painted” with Memento Summer Sky. The hardwood floor is colored with Copics and then I drew in the planks with a fine tip marker and ruler, adding in a “knots”. I added in a pair of rugs and some artwork, which are Making Memories Noteworthy brads. I removed the brad stems and used a glue dot to adhere them.

On the window wall, I used some thin white ribbon to create the window panels and covered up that “wall” with Close to Cocoa.
