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.

Great card, it was good to see you again on the Island. Don't forget to send us pictures of the cards you made at our workshop so we can add them to our gallery at Wightcat Crafts
