[7.12.2015] paper smooches sparks
Fun, right? I asked myself, what is the one thing that stands out to you in this photo? The line of objects across the page. So, that is what I decided to mimic. I’ve had my Bitty Bungalows stamp set waiting to be inked up, so that little cutie was put to good use.
I woke up at 7am on a Saturday to make this card. Yup. My husband had a morning meeting, so I took the time to get all crafty in my PJs. I also watched Vampire Academy as I stamped. I admit it, I like these cheesy vamp movies or tv shows. I’m a huge Buffy and Angel fan, HUGE. I still watch ’em on TNT. I can’t help it. Ha. But I digress.
I stamped all these little houses, colored them with Copics and fussy cut them. You could also use the prefect matching dies to cut them out.
I stamped and colored the trees and heart on the background and then remembered I wanted to use Distress Inks to color in the grass and sky. Oops. So, I used rubber cement as a masking fluid. It really works quite well. I have a video showing this technique on a different card. It really works well. Then, I added all my little homes and stamped a few birds… just because they are so cute.
