designer houses (by Veronica)

 Good morning everyone, today I am sharing my samples of the gorgeous quirky houses from Chocolate Baroque - definitely something different for new home cards!
The stamps are book mark sized, but easily make larger cards...
The card on the left is 8" square, just to prove it can be done.  I started out with scraps of bleeding art tissue laid onto white card to create the background and brushed with water. Once dry, the tree house was stamped using black versafine ink and coloured with watercolour pencils. A narrow black mat, then glued to the card at an angle. The sentiment is from punky expressions

The next ones are both on diffent size card blanks, the left is 5"x7", the right DL. The one on the left has a distress oxide background for a night effect, while the one on the right is just stamped onto white card  and then edged with different colured marker pens. tjhey are both coloured with watercolour pencils

 The Heath Robinson house stamp was stamped onto grey card using black versafine ink and coloured with a mix of brusho powders and watercolour pencils. I cut it out into a sort of bubble shape to echo the bubbles, then cut the same shape out in black as a mat and orangy red to match the colours of the house. The sentiment was also cut into a shape and given a black mat, then glued at an angle
 The last one is simply stamped onto grey card  and coloured with brusho powders, mounted onto a DL card blank.

I loved these quirky houses, especially the tree house, and can see them getting quite a bit of use - the tree house would make a great halloween card.......


Thanks so much for leaving a comment - it brings a little ray of sunshine into our day when we know our work is appreciated!
