Vera Lane Studio: Windows magnets

Hello Crafty Friends!

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

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 two magnets:



The images were first arranged in PowerPoint. 
I chose to use some digital paper as my wallpaper behind the windows and found some with tiny patterns. As these were the furthest back they were laid down first. Next came the dog, followed by the window frame. In the cat one, the frame was laid down before the cat, so that the flowers are behind the cats back. 
The images were coloured with alcohol markers. Glossy Accents was added to the eyes. Once the frames were cut out, they were adhered to rectangles of thick corrugated cardboard which was painted with black acrylic paint (as was any of the back side of the image that still showed).
Next, I coated the entire front and back with sealant - I used decoupage paste - this gives the card more strength and durability. Finally strip magnets were adhered to the back.

Here's the back view - not very pretty, but it does the job!
