Wishing you the very best on your new home

This stamped image is the house I didn't include in my last card I made using Katia's Studio Stamps.
This one looks more like its a star gazer so that's what I made it do.

Sorry the photo's aren't the best. There is a young lady who lives in my house (not naming names who used my camera while we were away taking photos of granddad and everything that moved and didn't and obviously decided she really liked this camera. Soooooo when mum unpacked it and put it back with her photography items this un-names young lady has snuck out, retrieved camera and packed for respite care).

I searched high and low and thought I must be going mad I knew I had unpacked it then had a light bulb moment, rang respite care and was told that they had gone out on the Harbour and un-named young lady took some wonderful photos. Looks like I might need to get a new camera.

Back to the card - not so great photo but you an see its still turned out ok. Background done using Distress Oxides. I did with all blue Oxides and came back with the mauves after I had finished the card to darken the sky a bit. I stamped and white embossed the building.

I coloured the building and tree with pencils and added bit of white pencil light coming out from the house. Then I added glitter paste stars. The tree was a late addition and white ink stamped and then I drew around it with white ink as it was too faint. Stamped the sentiment from another stamp set.
Drew in the hillside freehand, added the white ink line as though embossed then added green pencil in different colours to add dimension.  Then added watery mauve and purple Distress Oxide to darken the sky so the stars worked in better.

I was really happy with how the hillside looked. Cut the piece with wonky stitched die and thats it. The Top photo is probably the most accurate colour wise.


without the twist

Thanks so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon

Absolutely love the arty look of this, but I had to laugh at 'She Who Must Not Be Named' and her antics. Maybe it is time to get a new camera :) xxx
