A House by the Sea

Recently I found the Tuesday Taggers. They have a weekly challenge, and since I was looking for a new project I decided to join. This week's theme was "house" - you could create any project that you liked as long as it features a house.

By participating in Louise Gales Creative Color Challenge I've started to love turquoise and sea greens and use them way more often now. This card was pretty easy: Glue down background paper onto 4x6 card. Paint sea with acrylic paints (I used laguna, aquamarine and white). Smear the same paints on a small piece of bubblewrap and stamp. Let dry. Cut house from cardboard. Adhere different papers and stamp them. Punch little cat and put into window. Stamp mermaid and color with Distress Ink (vintage photo, spiced marmalade, worn lipstick, wild honey, peeled paint, faded jeans). Adhere to house and house to card. Print out words and glue to card. Done. (Stamps used: Mermaid/rocks by Expressions in Ink; Starfish Document by Stampington & Company; Shell Trio Wording by Stamp-It)

I love it! The cat in the window, the palm trees, the chimney... great details and I just love the look of the finished product!

I lover your house art! thanks for stopping by my Carola and for your keeping me in your thoughts. it really does mean so much. and im so glad somebody gets the whole handwriting thing. sometimes mine is so beautiful and graceful and then...well its NOT. and the thing is i love the inconsistency and naturalness when others do it. go figure. i also saw a fellow flyers blog @ & she used stamp and handwriting so im inspired to try that and use the type as well. thanks for the support. ;-) ok bye!
