Heartfelt Creations DT Alumni Hop

It's time again for the Heartfelt Creations Design Team Alumni monthly blog hop... We've chosen the last Tuesday of each month to share a project featuring Heartfelt Creations' stamps when we can, just for fun.  If you'd like a chance at winning a prize, be sure to leave a comment on every blog along the hop by Friday - there is a $25 gift certificate up for grabs for one random commenter! If you'd like to view the entire hop, you're in the right place! I'm at the top of the list today.


I made my card a couple of weeks ago for a challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  The challenge was to have a window or windows on your card, but I wanted to create a scene that made me feel like I was standing on tiptoes, looking through my neighbor's windows (NOT that I would ever do that! LOL) I used some of the roses from the He Knows stamp (I have cut mine into 3 pieces... and I'm sad to say the stamp has been retired...) and then the single house. I stamped the roses first, then masked them and stamped the house.


The other elements (fences, tree) are watercolored. The whole scene was painted with Ranger reinkers. I scored the fence lines with my Scor-Buddy first, then stenciled the wood grain on with a stencil from the Crafter's Workshop.

I cut around some of the petals and leaf edges and then embossed from the back side of the panel to add some more dimension in the foreground.
