challenges for this week
my favourite challenge, Gothic Arches is on vacation this week, I hope you get some rest in all the busi-ness Nancy, but I did manage to get 2 houses done for my next favourite challenge, dans ma maison ... il y a. This week the theme was green.
For the Alice house, I was wracking my brain for something to do and I thought of some stamps I have that have never been inked. I had a wonderful tree background stamp that I stamped 3x in Distress Peeled Paint ink and the Alice stamps were done with Versafine Vintage sepia. When I think of Alice I think of a thickly wooded garden, hence the trees. Then I coloured in the Alices with coloured pencils.
For the butterfly green, I used some more of that gorgeous BG paper, stampes the dotted diamond strin with Versamark on each edge of the roof and dusted it with pale gold Pearl-ex, it almost looks like the gingerbread trim on an old Victorian, stamped it again with Distress Weathered wood along the side and attached a metal butterfly.
Thank you for looking. Merci!!
