Our Home to Yours


Today is my first post over on the Art Impressions blog!! Yay!! I used one of the new Tryfold stamps sets and did some easy masking !!

I started by stamping one of the houses off set from the center. Then i stamped the left and right sides of the stamp on a full sticky post it note. I don't bother reinking the stamp, there's enough ink left to still get a good image. Next i cut out both sides and covered up their perspective sides.

I stamped the other two houses on each side of first house. Peal off the post it notes and wa-la two houses behind my first house!

To keep things simple (and more interesting, i think anyway) i only colored the first house that stamped (the middle house). Whenever i'm in the mood to color but don;t have time too i use Inktense pencils and a colorless Copic marker to color my image! Its really easy (and fast!) to do! I just color the image with the pencils and then use the colorless blender to blend the color. This will stain your nib so beware!! It doesn't bother me, but just a heads up in case it bothers you! :)

To finish i stamped the sentiment, trimmed the panel, wrapped some twine around and tied it in a bow. I added the panel to some blue card stock, then a white card base. Last i added a few blue sequins!!
