Another one of my dreamhouses...

I wanted to make a card that looks like it does now... It's the last day of August, and we don't have any autumn colours yet. You can still hang your laundry outdoors, but beware, it may start to rain! Even the rosebushes seems to bloom a second time...

Oh, and I used a fun technique that I invented! First I stamped the house on the white paper with Memento Tuxedo Black, the second time I stamped the same stamp a little bit lower but in London Fog. Then I got more depth in the image! I coloured the house with my Copics and that's about it! Just click on the picture to magnify it - you'll see the effect on the boards! I think it turned out pretty cool!


Jag ville göra ett kort, men ha med färgerna som är utomhus just nu. Inte direkt som förra kortet, alltså! 
Jag hittade på en ny teknik för att få lite mer liv och djup i brädorna:
Först stämplade jag mitt vita papper med Memento Tuxedo Black och lite, lite lägre stämplade jag exakt samma hus igen, men nu med London Fog. Klicka upp huset i full förstoring så ser du effekten på brädorna! Jag tyckte att det blev ganska coolt! (När grunden var klar målade jag huset med mina Copics.)

  6. What a beautiful card. Your coloring is awesome. I love the lace on the side.

  7. Vilket härligt kort!!! Gulligt med tvättlinan... Jag använde kniv och skar på frihand runt lås och handtag... Dolde skarvarna med att färga in med Vintage Photo stain. Det blev bättre än jag hade trott från början.
