Today's card is using a "new to me" stamp set by Hampton Arts. I stamped the houses on the watercolor paper with Hero Arts black ink. Then I masked them off and stamped the trees. I colored the scene in with distress markers and water. The sun stamp was stamped with distress ink and then I used a paint brush and water to make the lines not so perfect. After all of the image was dry I circle cut it out using the Creative Memories cutting system. Then I put Glossy Accents in the windows of the houses.

The patterned paper is by Prima and My Mind's Eye and watercolor paper by Strathmore. Smaller circles are Spellbinders dies and the sentiment is by Fiskars with ink by Hero Arts. Distress Markers and ink by Ranger.

Thanks for looking.



  1. Thanks for the sweet comment you left on my blog, Cindy. I thought I'd drop by and see what you entered for your MIM card. Love the way you framed the house in a circle die. The circle offsets the straight lines in the house.
