My First Little House
After a month away on the Isle of Wight we finally arrived back home on Wednesday afternoon. I haven't done much crafting, just some Christmas cards using a kit I ordered from QVC and had posted to my parents house and a morning at a craft workshop in Newport with Wightcat Crafts (it's turning into a once a year thing). I was busy on the sewing machine though, made myself 5 skirts.
Anyway my first thing since getting back is my very first go at a house.
The template is from the very talented Dan (see button at the top of my blog for a link). He has been releasing different templates weekly, you can still get the house template for a small fee. I reduced the template to 75% of the original size.
Used Adirondack ink pads (butterscotch terracotta and espresso) and finished with a black gel pen. Stamps used are some tiny ones by Clear Stamps I have just stamped randomly all over the house.
I had lots of fun getting ink on my fingers after such a long time, I can't wait to do the next one.
The girls are back at school next week so I am hoping to get more time to sort throught my crafting stash abnd play some more.
