It's Featured Stamper Sunday and I was actually able to play straight away!!! :) Today the honour goes to mkstampin74 (aka Mercy) who has a fabulous gallery!!! I was inspired by her Cuppyland card and it reminded me that I had to make a Housewarming card for our Chaplain and his family. I changed the image, sentiment, colours and paper, but kept the house theme, layout and location of the sentiment.
I started with a base of Old Olive, layered with white (pierced), So Saffron and some Windsor Knot DSP. The strip through the middle is more OO and SS (pierced) and some light blue double stitched grosgrain ribbon. The main image is from the retired SU set 'Right and Home', stamped in black stazon on watercolour paper. (I recently discovered how good watercolour paper is --- I'm definitely using it more when a lot of colouring is required!!!) It was coloured with SU markers and a blender pen for the houses and grass and sponge for the sky, cut out with circle nestabilities and popped up with foam tape. The sentiment is from Stampabilities that my friend Kristina sent me and finished off with corners cut using the CB 'Vintage' die set.
