Happy Homes

Happy Tuesday to you all

I don't know about you but I have always been a fan of Leonie Pujol.  I enjoy her programmes every Wednesday afternoon on Hochanda and couldn't resist this set of Stampenduous stamps last week when I saw them being used.  It was the wonderful sentiments which I just had to have.

They arrived on Friday and I made this card on Saturday morning before the footie.

I stamped the houses on to the front of the card just to get he position then used Distress inks for the background and splattered a little water on the bottom part..

 I stamped the houses onto a scrap of white card, coloured in with my new Koi watercolour pens then stuck them onto the card and drew the paving roughly,  adding a bit of Promarker for shading.

The sentiment is one from the set and I put a few birds in the sky.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
Creative Inspirations #248 (anything goes) and
Artistic Inspirations blog  #153

A great little terrace of houses - love them. Sadly Hochanda has gone from Freeview for the time being and I don't find it as convenient to watch on the computer.
