This Ol' House


So I've been seeing things again with Neat & Tangled Stamps.  I thought the positive and negative presents from this set would make excellent windows and doors, and there just happened to be a little roof tile stamp in there too.  And a straight line which did nicely for the chimney.


And what about that little splatter top right in this set?  Don't you think it could pass as a flower?  I did, especially with the long splat inked up as a stalk and a sequin added to the centre.

So I had all the images for a little house, and it just so happens I had a shaped card in the form of a quirky house, so I'm entering into the Little Tangles Shaped Card challenge.


And this ol' house as a triangular roof, so I'm entering it into CASology where the cue word is, yup, triangle.


It's also a one layer card, so I'm entering it into CAS on Sunday, where the theme is one layer CAS cards.




ETA: I've realised it's also eligible for the Stamps and Sequins challenge over at Stamplorations:



Stamps: Neat & Tangled Just for You, Ink Splash
