I absolutely love this card! I need to make some cards for real estate, so I pulled out one of my favorite sets. Boards & Beams has the cutest houses and sentiments for that purpose. I based this card on one by Nichole Heady found here. I loved how she cut out the windows and backed it with acetate.
I didn't want to bother with acetate, so I simply stamped the house in black on the cream panel underneath. Works just as well! I used my Copic markers on the house and trees, and then added shading around the fence.
The terracotta panel was a happy accident. I originally stamped it using Guidelines in the matching ink, but it completely faded into the paper. In an effort to save it, I sponged Dark Chocolate ink all over the paper. I really like the rustic-style result and it even brought out the stamped pattern, almost like a resist. It's hard to see in the photo, but it's there!
Did I mention how much I love this card? I think I'll be making a few more of these in other colors! :)
