I had laying on my desk some patterned papers from a Basic Grey / Hero Arts paper pack and I looked at them and thought, "These are just like what Betsy was talking about--a large, medium, and small print. I actually had used them in a previous project--that's why they were just laying loose. So I grabbed them and started thinking about my card.
Remember, I am trying to use my window dies, and for lack of a better thought, I decided to cover the front of the window card with these papers. I did just what Betsy said--I used a larger amount of the largest print, a middling amount of the middle size print, and a smaller amount of the smallest print. My card reflects the sizes of the prints from top down (or bottom up, if you prefer). And because the largest print was of funky looking birds, I also grabbed one of my favorite stamps--funky birds! This is a Magenta print, and I thought it would be perfect for my card. I stamped the image in Memories black ink, coloring with Copic markers and the new Kiryana (sp????) metallic markers. My image is so bright and colorful! After trimming and attaching the stamped image to the inside of the card (mounting on a background of bright yellow), I felt the card was a little plain. So for some drama, I added narrow strips of black cardstock. These strips really set off the sunshiny yellow and orange. I also stamped a Paper Smooches sentiment in black ink. Lastly I added a Tim Holtz tiny tag, stamped and set with a green eyelet. Oh, did I mention I really put some window plastic on the window. Covering the entire front of the card allowed me to do this easily. Who wouldn't want to receive such a bright and colorful card?! Here is a peek at the inside:
