I was very excited when I found out they were sponsoring us, then when the stamps came through the door I was almost jumping up and down - they were on my list to buy as soon as they entered the UK :) [You can buy them at The Stamp Attic now by the way :)]
It's my choice of colours this week and when I saw this picture I just fell in love with the house! Isn't it gorgeous? And the white picket fence with the bright red geraniums just looks stunning...and warm! Not like the wet and windy weather we've been having for the last couple of days! If anyone would like to share a photo of where they live, I'd love that! When friends and family go away to foreign climes, it's photos of everyday houses and shops I'd like to see, even more than the famous places. But it's rare that they take that kind of photo.
I made a 3d house from foamcore and painted it with a turquoise emulsion paint! Whilst collaging the pieces I had the idea that the circular date stamp would make a cool tree. It's leaning slightly to the right, but I'm still pleased with it lol.
I kept the side of the house limited in colour so it was obvious which was the front but I think it needs some red to 'lift' it a little, even if it's only a little red heart hanging from the roof, or red doors and windows.
Roben-Marie Smith, designer of these gorgeous stamps is our guest designer over at The Play Date Cafe, so head on over to see her piece, and those of my fellow designers. It's really good to see these very 'grungy' stamps used in a very different way as designers who wouldn't naturally choose these images have produced some fabulous pieces! :)
[Apologies for not visiting pdcc entrants this week just gone, my excuse is in the previous post! Normal service will resume next week :)]
