Another Brick In The Wall

Please note my BLOG CANDY post is HERE.

Time for my weekly DT piece for Creative Expressions using the wonderful Art Houses from Sam Poole.
I decided to create a card this week using Sam's fabulous stamps, creating the background with Wendy Vecchi's brick wall stencil.  I created the background using Distress Inks brushed corduroy and walnut stain.
I stamped the houses onto white card and coloured with Distress Inks, adding a small domino for the chimney on each image, colouring with ginger Alcohol Ink.
The text seemed perfect for this piece which is computer generated and coloured with Distress Inks. I also added birds to the top of my wall again coloured with Distress Inks and stamped with Sam Poole's Newsprint stamp plate using black Archival Ink.
I stamped DREAM BIG onto a piece of white card and stencilled the brick wall in the background for further interest. I also added the heart to the top of the card, taken from the house image, stamping into Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel coloured with Lapis Black Cosmic Shimmer UTEE and a touch of Perfect Pearls, and stamping into the enamel whilst hot. I rubbed over the raised areas with a touch of silver Paint Dabber.

I am really enjoying using these stamps, hope I am inspiring you along the way. Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

I'm loving these Arthouses and what you're doing with them... this is another beauty. Of course I love the colours: the houses have the look of Delft china, and I love the birds perched along the top. Great wall too!!
