day 4 STAMPlorations spotlight - Houseextras



Welcome to Day 4 of the STAMPlorations July release Spotlight where it's all about Shirley's new set called HOUSESEXTRAS.  What a great way to create fun little scenes with Shirley's previous little houses set. Or stand alone... that trio of trees up top really caught my eye.



Stamped the trees and sentiment with Memento black on cream CS. Colored with Copics, adding some dots in darker colors as leaves. Penned a wonky frame with a black marker and inked the edges of the panel and cardbase with my new Hero Arts Orange Ombre inkpad.

Check out what the rest of the team made! You'll find links to all our projects here. Leave your comments by August 23rd for a chance at prizes. Five commenters randomly drawn from the designers' blogs will each win the stamp set featured for the day. And one commenter randomly drawn from the STAMPlorations blog will win a $25 gift certificate!

Happy hopping. See ya tomorrow.

This is so simple and yet so pretty. I am constantly trying to do those hand drawn wonky type of lines, I love the look, but mine just look absolutely horrible. Need to go back to practicing after this inspiration.

My tip... Make a dot in each of the four corners and then connect them with a wavy line!
