Window Dressing

I was having a hard time decided what to do with this stamp set I preordered. I really liked the concept, and it reminded me of Basket full of Fun, which was another level 3 hostess set from last fall.
I used several techniqes for this one, including wood grain, where I swiped barely banana ink over barely banana cardstock, then swiped my whisper white craft ink pad over the cardstock. Then I took my more mustard Stampin Write marker and a ruler and drew the boards.
The windows and curtains are made with vellum cardstock, and the window is popped up on dimensionals.
Here are ingredients:
Stamps: Window Dressing, Sincere salutations
Paper: Vellum Cardstock, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Watercolor Paper, Pacific Point
Ink: Pacific Point, Barely Banana, Stazon Black, white Craft ink, Chocolate Chip, More mustard Stampin Write Marker
Accessories: White grosgrain ribbon, Stampin Dimensionals
Happy Stampin'

I just love your card, so creative. I am very excited to try the Wood Stain look. Might you think about posting this technique for all to see? Thank you for sharing.
