our house in the middle of our street.

hey there,
well here I am again, with yes another tag!!I have been having another play with these fab new house stamps from The Artistic Stamper..and had a look through some of my inspiration tags from creative chemistry 101..the great Tim online course, which is still available. and so, ramblings over here is the result:

I started by using archival resist technique to create a  background and some background stamps from Tim's set.... and some of the houses and sentiment from The Artistic Stamper.I decided to use a little wooden house (not sure where from sorry!) to make a keyring..so i stamped with a house from the set using black archival and when dry coloured using distress markers.

The sentiment was stamped onto card and coloured with DI and I used rusty hinge DI to colour the ribbon.

I added some little keys form stash and there you have it! let me know what you think?

I am entering this for the following competitions:
