Hi all, can't believe I did this for my Dad's birthday on 5th June (still got the hot glue gun burn!!!) and I haven't shown you all yet lol. My inspiration came from Hels article in the May 2012 Craft Stamper and of course I wanted to try something new for Mojo Monthly as I really like to do new techniques for it. Sarah who does Mojo Monthly has just had a gorgeous baby called Ruby so a big congratulations to the proud parents.
I had both these house frames from paperartsy that I bought about 3 years ago from the NEC, I followed Hels instructions with the frame using black dabber, then got OH to give it a good sand, then used walnut distress inkpad over it. The background used manilla cardstock with distress inkpads and lots of stamping, think you can see the rest lol. I am really proud of myself and my Dad loved it, it certainly gave me confidence to keep trying new things.
Thanks for visiting :-) hugs Kerry xxx
