I printed out the image onto kraft cardstock and then colored the bird with Copic markers. I created my "window" by cutting out a frame using Nestibilities dies. I then ran the window frame through one of the new wood grain embossing folders from Tim Holtz. I also cut out a piece of acetate to act as the front of the window. I also stamped a swirl, from Papertreyink, onto the acetate.
The window frame was attached on top of the Bluebird image using foam tape. My designer paper is from my stash and I confess that I'm not sure of the manufacturer. For my sentiment, I grabbed an acrylic one from Papertreyink and bent it so that it followed the line of the frame. The blue rhinestones are from Little Yellow Bicycle.
