*Vera Lane Studio: Window Pocket Letter

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I'm sharing several DT posts for Vera Lane Studio. This is the first.

This week saw the release of a new set of digital stamps called Windows. The possibilities are endless with these lovely window frames.

I made a mini Pocket Letter:

For those not familiar with pocket letters, they normally contain 9 pockets, 3 rows of 3. A mini pocket letter has 1 row of 3, so the pocket letter sheet is simply cut horizontally. Inside each pocket is an ATC sized card (2.5 x 3.5 inches).

I wanted to use the sentiment that came with this set, so I chose to have two Vera Lane ladies gazing out of the other two windows.

I arranged the images in PowerPoint and then printed them out. With png images, just lay down the image you want furthest in the background first.
 I coloured the images with alcohol markers, then cut around the frames. I decided to use wood, brick and stone patterned paper for my walls to give them a natural look. The frames were popped on foam pads.

This is Helga from Helga's Hedgehog:

And this is Gwen, one of the Ladies Who Lunch:

There are many wonderful and weird residents on Vera Lane. Who would you have looking out from your window? 
DT member Teresa has a mini competition on our Facebook page , open until the end of May, which we'd love you to be a part of.
