Recessed Window 1

Good afternoon everyone,

Something totally different today! This is a recessed window card which I found the instructions for at SCS. The camera really doesn't have the recessed part show up too well...but the man collaged image is indented 1/4" into the card.

I slipped a torn piece of vellum in between the DP and the card front. It was stamped and sponged with an unknown UM text stamp with Colourbox Dark Brown ink.

The focal image is also stamped in D. Brown ink on the reverse side of the DP. Can anyone help me with the manufacturer of the UM please?

I Opalised the chipboard (from Collections), which has a couple of beads thrown on top of the second last layer to add a little bit of texture...would have had more texture 'cept I burned my finger, so decided it could well do without! The little ruler embellishments come from Collections, a great Australian company which specialises in ephemera. Email me if you are interested in anything from her, as I am one of her retailers.

The only thing totally not male is the butterfly embellishment....Though my hubby would say I was being sexist! He loves the really pretty ones we get around here!
