Across townPosted: August 28, 2018 Filed under: City stacks, City Stacks dies, Coloured pencil | Tags: Concord & 9th, Faber-Castell Polychromos Colour Pencil 5 Comments
These little houses and trees came from the Concord & 9th ‘City Stacks’ set. I love the possibilities with this set. You can stamp a simple single house or a detailed layered scene. I decided to line my images in one long line extending across the front and back of the my card.
I stamped in versafine clair nocturne ink and did all my colouring with polychromos pencils. I used the co-ordinating dies to create masks to make the stamping easier when tucking those trees in amongst the houses. I also die-cut a cloud edge from cardstock as a guide for my pale blue pencil coloured clouds. I have a class coming up in September where we will be watercolouring these cute stamps to create some city scenes. Check it out on my Upcoming classes page.

What a delightful card!
Awesome card, I love how the town goes across the back of the card!
I really like the idea of having the ‘ road ‘ on the back of the card continuing onto the front. What a friendly looking town.
Very clever and fun, Heather! Love the card!
What a beautifully designed card Heather and how great to have it right the way round the card. I love the pencil colouring. Gorgeous! These will work beautifully for your workshop too. x
