New Home Card with Happy Place & Ink Dots

Hello arty friends, Angie here with a New Home card for a friend. I played with the loveyl houses from the Happy Place stamp set on a stenciled Distress Oxide Background.

To start with I cut a piece of card and used the Ink Dots Stencil and Distress Oxides to create an interesting background with an ombre effect.

Next I stamped the house onto watercolour paper and then coloured it in using one of my watercolour sets (a collection of handmade colours bought from different shops). I added a little bit of shading using coloured pencils.

I added some very light (grey Archival) text stamping to the background, as well as some neon pink splatter to bring more interest to it. Then I stamped a quote from the Happy Place set onto cream paper to be used as my sentiment. (I often use off-cuts – the tops and bottoms – of book pages I’ve used elsewhere as I prefer this to the stark white of normal paper).

I hope you like it. See you soon!
