What's outside your window?

There is a very interesting challenge on Less is More this week.  Mandi and her team want us to think about what's outside our windows.  Although I live on an island I don't have a view of the sea so my view is an imaginary one! This theme needed a watercolour effect so I coloured the scene with distress markers. I made my own card to get it the size I wanted.

I'm also going to enter this card into Addicted to Stamps and More challenge #186 - Anything goes

Materials used:-
Stamp - Sheena Douglass "Peaceful Lakeside" (partly stamped)
Sentiment - Stampin Up "Sheltering Tree"
Distress markers - various
Archival ink - Wendy Vecci Potting Soil
Watercolour card - Westminster Bockingford

Thanks for visiting my blog - now hop over to LIM and see what the other participants could see from their windows.


  1. Strikingly beautiful--if not outside your window! Love the design of this card, too!

  2. Lovely card, great image !!

  3. Love this stamp and your layout with the subtle layers adding dimension while the card itself still feels uncluttered and CAS. Very nicely done and a fab LIM entry!

  4. Such a beautiful watercolour scene balanced with lots of white space! I would love to look out of my window at this every day :) Thank you for playing along with us at Less Is More!

  5. Love the shape and size of your card Margaret and your scene is just fabulous. Thank you so much for sharing it with us at Less is More.

  7. It's taken me a while to get around to seeing what's outside your window!
    This is fab, I guess not many people are lucky enough to have a view like this!
    Thanks so much
