Across town

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.

    I really like the idea of having the ‘ road ‘ on the back of the card continuing onto the front. What a friendly looking town.

    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
