Textured House Card

Hello.  Gail from the design team here today with a simple card using bright colours and some layers.


As soon as I saw the Time Out challenge picture I thought of these fun Textured Houses and the cute little daisy from Textured Flowers.  I started by drawing a line and stamping the small daisy with orange distress ink.  I water coloured with Mowed Lawn distress around all the daisies.  Then I needed some trees.......  OK, so they are mushrooms, but I think stamped with green distress they made pretty good trees LOL.  I stamped lots of the Textured Houses on card, coloured them with sharpies and cut them out.  Then I arranged them on my card.    Simple.  And even a few layers.  


That frilly bit at the top??  Oh, that's what you get when you watercolour on paper and then try cutting it with a craft knife before it's dry!!  But I thought the ripped paper looked interesting so I added it as a feature to the top of my card.  I do hate to throw anything away.  


Thanks for dropping by.  
Our current challenge is LAYERS and you can join the fun here

  1. Cute! That torn piece is super cool and I LOVE your mushroom trees! :) I guess we could all take a better look at what we already have and see if we might use our stamps for something completely different than for what they were originally intended.
    Thanks, Gail! ♥
