I started by die cutting the houses, 2 pieces per house, for front and back...I like the back to be neat and tidy.
Using a selection of Artistic Outpost stamps I created some backgrounds on some A5 pieces of thin card that I'd previously coloured with Glimmer Mist Sprays.
Next I covered each section of the houses with my background card....once done I then put some washi tape back to back to string all the houses together, then I glued on the backs of the houses.
One Domino size for the Man
& 4 x Inchie sizes for the Cow Girl
& One Inchie size for the man
To decorate the front of the houses, I used some Twinchies, Inchies and Domino sized grey board and mdf pieces.
Using some pieces of the unstamped backing card I stamped backgrounds to compliment each face I wanted to use....glued that backing to each shape before I stamped the faces etc. By this time I had lost count of how many Artistic Outpost stamps I had actually used...to be fair having 23 sets, is it any wonder I lost count!
1.5" square size for lady,
Domino size for boy & Inchie size for lady.
Once all the shapes were stamped, I used distress ink pads and a damp brush to add some colour to the images....finished of the whole piece by distress around each house with distress inks.
Hope you like them....I'm not parting with these,lol
