|This week Penny Black brings you their new challenge and feature. Penny Black is show casing the new mimi release all week. I love this house and have so many ideas how to use it. When I created this very tall card I was going for a subtle holiday card so I don't burn out on Christmas before Thanksgiving..lol|
|I used Copic markers and a few Tombow markers to color the house. I promise to keep better a list of the marker numbers. Sometimes I color the images when I am traveling and it's impossible to keep track. (This particular house was colored in Italy). I stamped the slate roof twice and popped it with foam dots. All of the windows are coated with Glossy Accents and look so dimensional in person but, I know you have a good imagination and can "see" it. Last year I explained in detail how I distress my backgrounds here if you are interested.|
I was gifted the best white ink on the market and stamped it on vellum to create some smoke from the chimney. Be sure to allow adequate dry time on the ink. You might notice I attached the vellum at the base behind the chimney with a tiny amount of Glossy Accents. I wrapped the top of the vellum on the back of the card and taped it down. The holly on the top of the roof is from this stamp set to add a festive touch to the house.
|I would love it if you could hop over to Penny Black and leave a comment there instead of here....only if you were going to leave one. I really am happy that you pop in so happy so please don't feel obligated at all. I can't wait to share a butterfly card I just finished so stay tuned. Thanks for your visit!! Hugs, Kathy|
