New Home



I've been wanting to make a card for the latest Fusion challenge since I saw their lovely photo inspiration:

I wasn't aiming to follow the sketch, but once I'd stamped my houses and sloshed some Distress Ink watercolour on them, I thought it would look rather nice in the sketch format.

Seeing as I've watercoloured, I'm also entering AAA Cards Challenge - watercolour techniques:


The challenge at City Crafter is Home Is Where the Heart Is

City Crafter #223 - Home Is Where The Heart Is
And I'm also entering Simon Says Work It Wednesday - Blue.

I'm doing a spotlight feature on iron-off embossing at STAMPlorations today - here's a sneak peek:

  20. Gorgeous card--I love your neighborhood and how you colored it. Great way to do the sentiment, too. I am wondering what stamp you used for the houses? I've got a think for house stamps.
