Silly Scape Window Card

As soon as I saw the new release of the Silly Scape (Hero Arts digital image, see here ), I know I HAVE to get it. The beauty of the digit kit is that you can re-size it, however large and small. PERFECT for a lot of projects and cards!
 To join the fall fun and spirit over at Hero Arts monthly challenge,  I made a window card! It is rather easy and fun to make...just a bit of cutting and layering. The background sky was created with some masking. I punched out a circle with a small Post-It not and used the applicator to create the sky with distress inks. 
it's time ...to celebrate
 I used my new Marvy Markers Le Plume Permanent Markers for the coloring. This Wednesday I will share my work with focuses on coloring and you can find out all about Marvy Markers over SRM Blog. You can comment here to win 24 Marvey Markers (before Sept. 23). The sentiment is SRM Stickers which is rather perfect for this design, in my opinion.

Also I added some silver Liquid Pearl around the red clock! I think I am addicted to that stuff now.  Hope you have a great day!
